In Episode 3 of the InFullFrame Podcast, I sit down with wedding and event planner Andrew Roby. Based in Washington, D.C., Roby is an incredibly talented designer and planner who has also stepped up to be a leader in our wedding industry. His strong voice over the past few weeks about the conversation of diversity and inclusion has amplified presenting our industry and society with the opportunity of progress.
During this episode, Roby shares his thoughts on how the divide was created between mainstream publications and black-owned publications and media sources. Roby also provides a road forward for how we can all come together and be stronger for it. The scarcity mindset drives many negative approaches to business, but also has an effect on the lack of inclusion in the wedding industry: we can all flourish by lifting up our fellow industry members.
