Overview

The conversation around diversity at UK events has recently heightened, adding to recent global movements such as #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, #HeForShe. The shift to virtual events since the Covid-19 pandemic has meant that access to a diverse range of speakers and audiences, should be better than ever and yet events, which do not take diversity into account proliferate. This project will map the landscape and scale of diversity and inclusivity in the UK events industry, and make recommendations to event organisers and policy influencers, on how UK events and the industry can become more diverse and inclusive.
