Pride Month is here. A time to celebrate, support and uplift members of the LGBTQ+ community. While diversity issues have taken on greater prominence over the past year, there is still much work to be done, and the meetings industry is well-positioned to lead that charge.
On this episode of Eventful: The Podcast for Meeting Professionals, Derrick Johnson chair of the LGBT Meeting Professionals Association and chief diversity officer and director of event strategy for Talley Management Group speaks with Northstar Meetings Group's senior associate editor Elise Schoening about how planners can better support the LGBTQ+ community. Among the points discussed:

-How planners can seek out inclusive destinations and use their influence to encourage greater inclusivity in the sites they select (12:35).
-Details about LGBT MPA's first ever educational event, Day of Diversity, taking place on June 30 (16:30).
