Bishop-McCann Fulfills PCMA’s Ascent CEO Promise; Recognized for Vision of Happiness, Inclusion and Health
Our vision is to be the agency partner our clients can’t imagine living without. To fulfill that vision, we are committed to doing more than simply meeting our client’s needs in terms of planning the perfect event, meeting or incentive program.
While we offer a wide variety of services—from production services to registration and logistics—we also make sure to keep our eye on matters of accessibility, diversity and overall wellness. That’s why we applaud PCMA President and CEO Sherrif Karamat, CAE, for launching the Ascent CEO Promise at IMEX Frankfurt. The Ascent CEO Promise asks CEOs to embrace a culture of inclusiveness in both our workplaces and in our events.
Bishop-McCann is proud to step up to the challenge. We have been a steadfast supporter of diversity and inclusion and we prioritize these traits not only in our client’s programs, but also in our company culture. As a result, we have a fun, reliable and safe environment to foster growth and creativity in a myriad of ways. After incorporating these important qualities into our environment and with our clients, we’re honored to have had these efforts awarded by multiple organizations.

- Silver Status Workplace Certification
Teamwork really does make the dream work, especially when it comes to making sure our team is happy and healthy. Everyone is the happiest and works best when they’re healthy, so we’re constantly working towards finding creative ways to inspire wellness for everyone in our organization. Our work to ensure the health and happiness of our associates has allowed us to receive the “Workplace Wellness Certification” from the KC Chamber’s Healthy KC Workplace Wellness initiative.
In addition to these recognized efforts, we’re always working toward helping our associates and our communities in any way we can, especially through the Just Right Projects. Supporting others in the community allows them to thrive, and when our communities thrive, we can too.
