Topic: Respect, Courtesy, and Civility: DEIB


Attend this meeting to learn more about advancing the principles of advancing diversity, equity, belonging and moving to inclusion. The American with Disabilities Act Title III prohibits discrimination based upon disability during activities occurring in public spaces serving the public. Learn more about providing reasonable accommodations for meetings. Creating an atmosphere that welcomes all attendees including those with disabilities isn’t just about meeting the requirements of the ADA law but about diversity, respect, inclusion, and belonging. As leaders in the meeting planning industry, we must increase awareness and acknowledge that self-reflection is a key component to advancing the principles of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We must examine the intersectionality of diversity with the meeting planning industry to create inclusive meetings.

Her distinguished career is marked by a relentless commitment to fostering inclusive spaces, evident in her role as a sought-after speaker at national conferences.

Summer Community Involvement Campaign!

Attention all SGMP La Members! We are thrilled to announce the launch of our Summer Community Involvement Campaign: The School Supply Drive! ✏️

With the new school year approaching, many students may not have access to essential supplies needed for a successful academic journey. That's why we're stepping up to make a difference! So you can donate School Supplies from notebooks to pencils to crayons to paper! Bring our donation to the June 27th or July 11th meeting. You can also help Spread the Word: Share this initiative with your friends, family, and colleagues! Together, we can amplify our impact and ensure that every student has the tools they need to thrive in the classroom. The students at the the Walter L.
