Rogers has led a team in developing a DEI program at Diversified that could and should be a template for the rest of the industry to consider emulating. Among many initiatives, Rogers’ team ran organization-wide Unconscious Bias training, broadened their recruiting resources/geographies to include more diverse candidate pools and launched a Diversity Internship Program.
“I am genuinely honored to receive the 2022 TSNN DEI Leadership Award," Rogers said. "I am humbled to be able to do this work for our organization with the support of so many colleagues and to have learned so much personally from others who have lived experience in this space. It is also very meaningful for me to be recognized by our industry, as we all work to better diversify our events, our teams and our leadership.”
