Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Entertain the world. EQUALLY.
EAMC is committed to a conference that represents all races, ages, gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicities, and physical and mental abilities. We are passionate in the continual pursuit of equality for all and a greater representation of all groups within our community.
Definitions and Approach
Diversity is about who is represented - We are working to build a more diverse conference and industry, from the attendees to the speakers to the interns and mentees. We can do better and we will do better.
Equity refers to equality of opportunity - To become more diverse, we need to realize that we are behind and need to focus on the opportunies we offer underrepresented groups. We are focusing on outreach and mentorship to build toward the diversity we want to see.
Inclusion addresses what people experience - We are focusing on having a diverse group of speakers, presenters and panels at the conference. We want all groups to feel represented. As the conference becomes more diverse, we need to make sure those presenting reflect that diversity.
