TTG Media is launching a new scheme to recognise individuals in the travel industry who are striving to improve the focus on diversity and inclusion in the sector.
A number of Travel Pride Champions will be named at this year’s Travel Pride, which takes place in the evening of July 4 after the TTG LGBT Conference.
Individuals can either nominate themselves or be nominated by others, and should explain in no more than 150 words why they deserve to be named a Travel Pride Champion. Their submission must detail the work they have done to improve the focus on diversity and inclusion – either within their own business, or with their customers, and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The changes they have introduced don’t have to be huge – even starting the conversation on diversity and inclusion within a business can be a significant step.
Examples could include encouraging a more diverse approach to company marketing or introducing a D&I policy within their business.
Individuals from a junior to middle management level are particularly urged to put themselves forward.
Submissions must be made by June 13. A shortlist will be announced on June 20, and a panel will then decide the final Travel Pride Champions, who will be revealed on July 4.
