I found this blog post, Evaluating Equity in Suppliers and Tour Operators, helpful when thinking about how to evaluate our tour operator partners for our Travel Program. There is a downloadable form that provides quantitative and qualitative questions to use in the evaluation process. I don’t think this is an end-all form, but it provides a good starting place to help you think about the types of considerations to use when looking at external partners, as well as what you and your organization can do to help advance equity and social justice.November 17, 2020 at 4:51 pm #8152mcgrewModerator
There are so many great DEI resources that help me listen better, further understand my privilege and the systemic racism in this country. With that, it’s sometimes been difficult to know where to prioritize my efforts for personal growth. I ran across this resource from the University of Minnesota Crookston that collates a multitude of resources and thoughtfully puts some structure around how someone (most particularly white folks) can work toward anti-racism. Whether you are just starting out on your journey or are further down the road, I like that it provides guidance on what actions each of us can take to further educate ourselves.
I hope others might find it helpful: https://www.crk.umn.edu/sites/crk.umn.edu/files/scaffolded-anti-racist-resources.pdf
Would love to hear what other resources folks have found helpful on either their personal or professional journey toward understanding and creating racial equityDecember 10, 2020 at 5:01 pm #8177mcgrewModerator
Ran across this article which sets the stage for much needed conversation about DEI in Travel.
Is the travel industry diverse and inclusive? It depends who you ask. A Travel Weekly survey reveals a wide gulf between how Black and white travel professionals see inclusion in the industry.July 1, 2021 at 3:27 pm #9105jaredrdialModerator
I listened to this webinar the other day from Tourism Cares on “Inclusivity is Sustainability” focused on how to make the tourism industry more inclusive from a panel of experts from AIANTA/NativeAmerican.Travel, Hospitable Me, Sage Seven (accessible travel) and the Chief of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with Visit Sacramento, I thought it might be a good resource for my colleagues.
