Hi everyone! My name is Morgan and I helped create this WeTravel Academy course! I believe inclusive and accessible travel has to be a top priority for the travel industry. But unfortunately, a lot of people lack access to travel-specific resources to help them be more inclusive, sustainable, equitable... (etc). Our hope with this course was to give everyone access to concrete ways you can make your travel business more inclusive. I'd love to hear any feedback or other resources from you all!
