AVIXA’s Diversity Council is hosting an event focused on diversity and inclusion in the professional audiovisual industry. The event will be held at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City on Thurs., Oct. 24 from 6 – 8:30 p.m.

Following 30 minutes of networking, AVIXA Diversity Council chair Charmaine Torruella will discuss the Council’s progress and what lies ahead for the group.

“I am so excited to share more about the Diversity Council’s initiative with the pro AV community,” said Tourrella. “We’re also very excited to announce that David B. Whitworth from Earth , Wind, & Fire will be joining us at the event!”

Following Torruella’s update, Cindy Davis, contributor to both Systems Contractor Newsand AV Technology, is set to moderate a panel discussing how five different companies are cultivating diversity in their workplaces.
