In recent times, the commercial AV industry — indeed, nearly all of society — has had its consciousness raised about diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB). Those in the integration, design and manufacturing communities have come to recognize the problems stemming from insufficient representation of females and people of color at our industry gatherings and in our corporate boardrooms. Although we’re seeing slow improvement, there’s still much more we can do.

Commercial Integrator and the NSCA DEI Action Council want to spur on this essential conversation and underscore the importance of DEIB in the commercial AV industry.

To help move us in the right direction, we present the next webinar in CI and NSCA’s Quarterly Business Playbook Series: “Amplifying Diverse Voices: Sharing Perspectives with Industry Members.”

We’re honored to welcome the following expert panelists for a frank, provocative conversation:

Akin Adewole Akin Adewole, CTS, Design Engineer, Verrex
Mildred Ramos Mildred Ramos, Principal, Shen Milsom & Wilke LLC
Chris Turner Chris Turner, Managed Solutions Account Executive, New Era Technology
Natasha Porizkovah Natasha Porizkova, Brand Inclusion Leader, livingHR

Among the thorny, but critically important, topics we’ll address will be

  • How to DEIB-optimize recruitment and hiring practices
  • The ways that cultural differences can perpetuate marginalization and systemic disadvantage
  • How diversity among decision-making teams leads to smarter, more profitable decision-making.
  • Industry-wide and organizational efforts to diversify the commercial AV community.

Recognizing that the most impactful conversations spring from the grassroots, we’ve opened a survey to ask the industry community what else it would like our expert panelists to address. Please take a moment to share your concerns and questions:
