This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sector Supplement - Event Organizers. It covers one of the reporting requirements of Indicator G4-EO5 – 'Type and impacts of initiatives to create a socially inclusive event'.
An event can increase its sustainability potential by sharing its benefits throughout the event life cycle as fairly and meaningfully as possible across all interested parties regardless of race, age, gender, color, religion, sexual orientation, culture, national origin, income or disability (mental, intellectual, sensorial and physical). Every step should be taken to maximize the inclusivity of the event throughout the event life cycle.
Social inclusivity refers to affordability, access to and awareness of the event through public media, accessibility of event content and other relevant information, and access to benefits from the event for all key stakeholders, including those who may otherwise be unable to participate.
Initiatives to address access difficulties can be reported in EO6 ‘Type and impacts of initiatives to create an accessible environment’.
Indicate whether the organization reports on the impacts of initiatives taken to create a socially inclusive event by choosing Yes or No.
An inclusive event in these Sector Disclosures, refers to an event that enables stakeholders to:
- Freely express who they are, their own opinions and points of view;
- Fully participate in the event equally, safely, confidently, independently, and with dignity regardless of race, age, gender, color, religion, sexual orientation, culture, national origin, income, or disability (mental, intellectual, sensorial and physical); and
- Feel safe from abuse, harassment or unfair criticism.
If provided, in the comments section include details about:
- The type and impact of these initiatives to make the event environment inclusive. For example, where initiatives to provide tickets or access to a specific population are implemented, report the number of recipients or the people impacted.
- The marketing and communications strategies, designs or amendments that provide access to information, before, during and after the event.
