AVIXA’s committees and councils guide the planning and development of membership policies and education training programmes. ISE2020 attendees have the opportunity to join AVIXA at various opportunities throughout the week to discuss the challenges facing the industry.|
As part of its professional development programme, AVIXA has planned two sessions on the Main Stage; these include keynote speakers, panel discussions with Q&As, and a chance to meet industry peers over nibbles and drinks.
AVIXA Diversity Council
Having taken place on Tuesday 11 February, AVIXA’s Diversity Council welcomed members that are interested in bringing together AV and integrated experience professionals from various backgrounds and cultures.
This event followed a trio of successful events held in the UK in 2019, as well as at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, and in New York. Featuring TV broadcaster, panellist, author and diversity advocate June Sarpong as keynote speaker, this Main Stage session led a focused discussion on advancing equality and diversity at the AVIXA Diversity Council Forum.
AVIXA Women’s Council
Taking place today (Wednesday 12 February) from 15:30 – 17:00 p.m. on the Main Stage is AVIXA’s Women’s Council in partnership with WAVE. Free to attend, AVIXA members are invited to listen to the notable key speakers – the Minister of Enterprise and Knowledge of the Generalitat of Catalonia, Hon. Ms Àngels Chacón, and Sarah Joyce, Chief Global Officer at AVIXA, who are both avid campaigners for equal opportunity for women in the workplace.
The discussion will revolve around how to play an active role in creating programmes and opportunities that address the hurdles blocking women’s empowerment and recognition in the AV industry. This will be followed by two panel discussions – one from C-Suite Execs on how they’ve grown into their leadership roles, the other from technical professionals on how they’ve climbed the AV career ladder. The discussion is open to both women and men who are interested in supporting and empowering women who work in the technology and AV industry.
