About the Events Industry Sexual Harassment Task Force
In May of 2018, several industry leaders joined forces to combat sexual harassment and form the Events Industry Sexual Harassment Task Force. The task force, comprised of leaders and executives from ASAE, AWE, EIC, IMEX, JMIC, MPI, PCMA and SITE, was formed to gather everyone behind a common goal: eradicate sexual harassment in the events industry. In the wake of movements like Times Up and Me Too, every industry must take action to create positive change and end sexual harassment, once and for all. The task force will identify tools and develop new resources to assist in educating individuals and the events industry about sexual harassment.
