Webinar: Diversity in AV - Information Series: ADA in AV - Hear Us Out!
This is the first of the AVIXA Diversity Councils' informative session bringing home diversity issues and looking at them through the lens of the AV industry. #DiversityInAV
Our Journey to an Equitable Future
The diverse voices of our industry inspire us to grow and bring change for the benefit of all that make up the audiovisual world. This includes taking a positive stand for more inclusion and equity for all, through a commitment to go further, push ourselves, and challenge our boundaries to help others on their journey.
As a member-driven association, we are using our talent and resources, as well as that of our industry volunteers to be a voice of change. We know that as the global industry organization, AVIXA must be intentional in acting on these issues and provide resources to affect change across the AV community.
DEI and AV: The Gender Pay Gap in Pro AV
It’s More Than Just Money: What You Need to Know About the Gender Pay Gap in Pro AV
Measuring the pay gap between men and women seems easy at first. What do women earn? What do men earn? Thanks to AVIXA’s extensive compensation and benefits survey in which we collected data from about 2,500 U.S. pro AV professionals, we know that women in our industry earn $70,500 on average, while men earn $89,700.
Why Pronouns Are Important
Asking, knowing, and using someone’s gender pronouns is a positive way to support and respect those around you or those you work with.
Unconscious Bias Training
Raising awareness of unconscious bias and the steps individuals can take to prevent biased attitudes and behaviors from interfering with workplace decisions and interactions.

AV Industry Pledge for an Equitable Future
We are calling on the entire audiovisual industry to stand with AVIXA. Champion further equity and full representation across every aspect of our business. We invite CEO's owners, thought leaders and all within the industry to join the list of signatories.
Through the AVIXA Foundation, we make regular contributions to two AV-related partner nonprofit organizations tackling racism and building career pipelines into the audiovisual industry for young adults from underrepresented communities. Both the Loop Lab and EnventU work tirelessly to help build a more equitable and inclusive industry for us all.
The Loop Lab
At AVIXA, we are committed to being the virtual diversity officer of the AV industry. We will chart a roadmap to an inclusive future through hands-on tools and professional guidance and reporting.
Beyond accelerating progress within AVIXA, we have a responsibility to help drive change within the audiovisual industry.
“We know there is a lot of work to do to improve diversity in our industry, and it can’t be achieved overnight, but I can pledge to you that AVIXA is dedicated to this action and will continue to share our progress along the way.”
– David Labuskes, CEO
