George Floyd’s unjust death It is not an isolated incident but another example of the Black community’s inequitable treatment and access, and the reaction around the globe has highlighted people’s outrage by the pace of change in the system. If meetings and events are truly agents of change – bringing people together to mobilize, collaborate and break down walls --what should our industry’s response be to the injustice facing the Black community? Join some of MPI’s prominent members for an open conversation about how to respond in the current situation, and tools and resources to move us forward.
