Do pronouns on the event name tags matter?

In this Conference Talk Show episode Inclusion Expert and all around good egg Lisa Koenecke discuss why planning an inclusive event from the start of the process is more effective (and cost effective) than trying to fix issues when they appear or slap together solutions in a hurry.

Yes, pronouns on name tags are important – because it is a way to show attendees you are thinking about them and preparing to welcome them.

Lisa also discusses how having a conference concierge and working with an inclusion expert paves the way to better attendee experience, fewer issues cropping up, and better use of your event budget.
