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.
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 equity
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.
