Event description

Description

The moral, legal and business case reasons for diversity and inclusion are a given but the AV industry demographic still falls short of other tech industries in this area. This session will focus on solutions to facilitate the development of increased diversity and inclusion in the AV/IT industry, with case studies and examples followed by an in-depth panel discussion to give attendees practical suggestions to take away and make a change.

Attendees will be drawn from across the AV industry spectrum from end users, Tech managers, manufacturers, distributors, integrators, consultants and technicians.
