Hosting Successful Inclusive Events for All: Move United Virtual Leadership Conference

Hosting events can be stressful especially when you want to make sure everyone is included equally.

We will discuss common barriers to participation and learn strategies to remove them. Ensuring inclusion in any event is not only best practice but also a great way to maximize the number of participants.
