Industry Night: Etiquette is Not Elitist, February 9, 2023


Emily Post has been America’s go-to source for etiquette and manners advice for the last 100 years. How Emily Post started and how her legacy continues is a rich rich history. It’s all rooted in — believe it or not — being considerate & respecting others. Etiquette is for everyone and meeting people where they are is exactly what Emily Posts’ classic guide is all about. The latest version has been completely rewritten with up-to-date and comprehensive advice. With me today is the author and great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post, Lizzie Post. She and I met a few weeks back, had a lovely lunch, and chatted about her keeping the family tradition alive and evolving with the times.

"Etiquette can be defined as a set of manners and principles, which include consideration, respect, and honesty." - Lizzie Post

"We want to present the best version of our authentic selves." - Lizzie Post

"Etiquette can be a powerful tool for building communities and fostering good relationships when it is used for self-reflection, to make others feel comfortable, and to be aware of the needs of others." - Lizzie Post
