The Best Social Media from the Events Industry
This week was the anniversary of George Floyd's death. The world will always have that painful reminder to lead the Black Lives Matter movement for societal change. Since May 25th, 2020, many EventProfs have taken a stand and became advocates for not only this cause but for diversity & inclusion in general within the industry and in the society.
Our Events sector is full of influential and talented professionals, from any country, ethnic group, religion, age, gender, sexuality and skin colour. Let's see their best social media content fresh from this week! DM me or send it to [email protected] if I've missed one.
