Hi, I am Susan Lee and doing some consulting in the DEI and the employment cycle in the travel industry.

Looking forward to learning about resources or links for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the travel industry, if you would like to share. Thank you in advance.

Hi Susan. Great question.

Here's a couple of resources off the top of my head:

National Blacks in Travel and Tourism Collaborative
Washington-based non profit organization for Blacks in travel and tourism.
blacksintourism.org

We featured BTT last year here on Travel Massive:


Travel Unity
A 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on increasing diversity in the world of travel.
travelunity.org

Black Travel Alliance
A professional non-profit organization 501(c)(3) created in 2020 to encourage, educate, equip and excel black travel professionals in education, media, and corporate positions.
blacktravelalliance.org

Women in Travel CIC
Empowering Women through Employability & Entrepreneurship in Travel, Tourism and Hospitality

Hope these help and looking forward to hearing others' suggestions.

Ian made a great list! I'd only add Nomadness Travel Tribe. The founder Evita Robinson did a massive survey which helped to update industry statistics to measure POC impact. nomadnesstraveltribe.com

I am building Exploryst.com, the "TripAdvisor for disabilities" platform to provide the details that people with disabilities require to confidently research and book their travel. Disabilities is unfortunately something that is routinely left out of the DEI conversation.
