The #Metoo movement is an international movement against sexual harassment and assault. It has empowered people throughout the world and given a voice to the voiceless. Like all industries, the events industry has been affected by these issues as well. Today we will be looking at the intersection of #MeToo and events. What can we do in the meetings and events industry to support equality and communication about this issue?
Our guests are Sarah Soliman of Soliman Productions and Courtney Stanley of CS Consulting.
