The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center has named Rocsean Spencer to the position of chief diversity officer (CDO). The centre recently created the position to reflect their commitment to implementing diverse, equitable and inclusive practices, providing equal opportunities that drive innovative solutions for its internal and external communities.

According to the International Association of Venue Managers, this is the first convention centre in the nation to establish the position of CDO. Ms. Spencer most recently served as the convention centre's small and emerging business (SEB) programme director.
