Human Trafficking: Be a Part of the Solution
March 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Human trafficking is happening everywhere – including at events. As professionals in the hospitality, tourism, events and sports industries, it is our responsibility to be aware of this issue and take action!
Join us for a training and discussion on recognizing and responding to the warning signs of human trafficking. Human trafficking and its relationship to the hospitality and events industry will be discussed, as well as ways to identify victims and respond appropriately. Participants will learn ways we can raise awareness of this continued concern and affect change. Relevant resources and MPI’s efforts to combat human trafficking will be shared with attendees.
Alexa Bufkin will guide us through the training and Katie Riggs will facilitate discussion and idea-sharing. The goal is for everyone to be more informed and aid in the movement of preventing human trafficking.
Alexa Bufkin, a 2022 Tourism, Events and Sport Management (TESM) master’s student graduate.
Katie Riggs, Founder of Riggs + Co, TESM alumni and past-president of Indiana Chapter of MPI.
