Did you know there is marginalization within marginalized communities? This secondary layer of discrimination against skin color, gender identity, disability, and/or weight (to name a few) plagues all communities depleting inclusion and notion of diversity.

Join LGBT MPA and Richard Gray, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Senior Vice President, Greater Fort Lauderdale as we explore the black hole of social identity and the opportunities planners have in considering destinations for meetings and events that celebrate cultural diversity and promotes an environment of inclusion.
