ILEA INDIANA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
TOOK THE DIVERSITY PLEDGE TOGETHER
ON FEBRUARY 4, 2021
Our Diversity Mission
Our mission is to expand diversity in our organization by creating a culture of equity, embracing differences, and promoting diverse cultures. We will provide an internationally inclusive safe space for our membership and other event professionals regardless of age, gender, gender identity, ability, ethnicity, nationality, race, and/or sexual orientation.
Progress. Commitment. Action. Results.
For the International Live Events Association, diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the core of who we are — an inclusive global community dedicated to personal and business development, inspiring all professionals engaged in live events to elevate their contribution to the industry. Our commitment to these values is unwavering. These values are a mission-critical piece of our culture. We know that having varied perspectives generates better ideas to solve complex problems and that without diversity, equity, and inclusion, it would be impossible for our industry to do its best work.
We are taking action to infuse these values throughout our internal culture, systems, and practices. We have initiated deliberate steps to strengthen our organization by introducing the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Task Force. Spearheading our efforts to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) throughout ILEA and the live events industry, the DEI Task Force will review where ILEA stands when it comes to DEI practices, produce education on DEI in live events, provide opportunities to highlight certified minority-owned business, and provide resources and strategies to assist ILEA chapters in becoming more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
