Maddy Ryley Associate Editor from Trade Show Executive interviews Nina Vidale, RX Event Director
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) are at the center of RX Global’s mission and value, and the powerhouse show organizer is walking the walk partnering with two foundations that support DE&I through education and mentorship — the Goodes O’Loughlin (GO) Foundation and Research in Color Foundation.
As part of RX Global’s pledge of $1 million over five years to select-not-for-profits around the world committed to improving inclusivity and diversity in local communities, the company partnered with the Australian Goodes O’Loughlin (GO) Foundation, which works with schools and universities in Sydney, Adelaide and Canberra, Australia, to support Indigenous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.“As the I&D Lead for the RX AU business unit, I nominated the GO Foundation,” Nina Vidale, RX Event Director – Life Instyle and Beauty Expo Australia, said. “Their values of integrity, equality, opportunity and strength in culture really resonated with me and of course aligned strongly with our core RX values. I whole-heartedly believe that education is one of the most powerful tools we have, and the GO Foundation’s purpose and mission is to create opportunities for Indigenous youth by empowering through education. In conjunction with this they also ensure Indigenous Australians continue a strong connection to their culture, which is so very important for long-term, meaningful change in this country. I felt that if we as a business can contribute, even just a little bit, to provide equity in opportunity and access to education and resources then we are making a difference that we can be proud of.”
