Whenever I’ve heard criticism over things like the AVIXA diversity council and other programs that are trying to make this industry more diverse, I often hear things like “OK but what are they actually doing to accomplish that?”

Well, the council chairwoman Charmaine Tor-ella is excited to share the first step in AVIXA’s commitment to restructuring the association and its leadership to think about diversity across the industry.

AVIXA announced last week it will put an emphasis on its search for diverse speakers at InfoComm 2021 and other events throughout the year.

Stories Mentioned in this Episode

The Commercial Integrator Podcast

The phrase ‘pro AV’ doesn’t do justice to all of the integration crowd, so we at Commercial Integrator wanted to create a podcast that speaks to all of those areas (and more!) under the umbrella of commercial tech integration.

The host, web editor Adam Forziati, has a background in radio and is looking forward to providing listeners with an entertaining, informative audio forum for all topics affecting the industry.

Podcast Release Schedule

We plan to release a shorter, single-topic episode once every week or two on Fridays (just like this episode). But at the end of each month, we’ll also drop a longer, in-depth episode of the AV podcast with features like Editor’s Desk, CI Monthly News Spotlight, CI’s Project of the Month, and more.

We hope you’ll share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #AVPlusPod !
