More than 30 years ago, the PHLCVB became one of the first CVBs in the country to establish a division to promote the destination as a diverse and inclusive location for meetings, events, conventions and visitors. With an engaged advisory board of 74 local business leaders from a wide range of industries, PHL Diversity leads the charge in diversity and inclusion efforts and connects meeting and convention planners with the region’s diverse business community to ensure successful events. The division also works with Philadelphia partners to attract diverse conventions to Philadelphia.
We are thrilled to launch our sixth season of PHL Diversity Podcast with Alissa Carpenter, a multi-generational workforce expert, author, speaker and training facilitator. Alissa is the owner of Everything’s Not Ok and That’s Ok, where she provides training, consulting, and speaking services to organizations all over the world. Alissa is also the author of “How to Listen and How to Be Heard: Inclusive Conversations at Work”.
She works to help bridge communication gaps across generations, job functions, and geographies, and she has worked with organizations ranging from non-profits to multi-billion-dollar enterprises. She has been featured in multiple media outlets including Forbes, ABC, FOX, NPR and CBS.
Alissa joined Greg DeShields for a in depth conversation about working from home, being heard and the importance of an inclusive workforce.
