Americas: MPI Inaugurates Confidential Harassment Reporting System

In partnership with:

Meetings Professionals International has a “Principles of Professionalism” code that covers discrimination, harassment, and ethics, spelling out guidelines for members’ business behavior. In light of the #MeToo movement, however, the association has given those principles some new teeth with the introduction of a confidential reporting system called MPICares.

In a message to the MPI community this week, MPI President and CEO Paul Van Deventer, explained the association’s thinking: “To ensure the vitality and sustainable health of our association, as well as the ongoing engagement of our volunteers, it is critical that MPI establishes harassment-free and safe environments that foster healthy exchanges, professional growth, and collaboration. We collectively share in the responsibility to create a safe, secure, and ethical community, including by steadfastly implementing a zero-tolerance policy to the types of misconduct that jeopardize our community values and/or are in conflict with our Principles of Professionalism. In support of that objective, we are implementing a confidential reporting system, called MPICares, which will improve transparency, enhance communication and empower you to raise issues and concerns.”
