Diversity and RESPECT

At NOEA we have started working to address the inherent lack of diversity in the industry. We have appointed a dedicated council member to work on Diversity and Equality, part of this role has been to work with the BVEP working group on Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion to address issues across the entire events industry, not just outdoor events.

We launched the RESPECT campaign in 2019 in conjunction with the Equalities and Human Rights Commission to reduce sexual harassment in the hospitality industry. The plan was to test run it in 2020 and then to widen the reach to cover all harassment. We are still developing it and we urge all members to sign up for when we can re-open. Harassment in all forms is unacceptable and NOEA wants to support our members to stamp this out.

If you are interested in helping with the campaign to increase representation for everyone at all levels please get in touch.
