We have partnered with the Events Industry Council (EIC), the global voice of the business events industry on advocacy, research, professional recognition and standards, to support its Equity Acceleration Plan.
VisitScotland Business Events has sponsored EIC’s equity study, which is the crucial first step of the Equity Acceleration Plan and will help EIC to understand the current state of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the workplace across the events industry and to establish a benchmark to measure future progress.
EIC will use the responses of this study to inform the development of tools, resources and recommendations in the subsequent phases on the Equity Acceleration Plan, which aims to provide a framework to turn our vision to action and lead the challenge against discrimination and systemic racism in the events industry.
Neil Brownlee, Head of Business Events, VisitScotland said: “At VisitScotland we believe that business events can be a driver for change, and it is important for us to align with organisations and associations that support this vision. This study is an important step towards a more diverse and inclusive sector. We encourage our friends and colleagues to be as open as possible in their answers so that the EIC can create the resources necessary to improve our industry.”
