Diversity in Leadership Program

A program for travel executives and leaders that want to shape more inclusive teams and diverse leadership
In Partnership With:

Monday, November 14

2:00-3:30 PM

As companies in travel re-emerge from the pandemic with priorities shifted--or completely re-ordered--we will come together at Phocuswright to tap into the collective knowledge and action that has evolved. Our Diversity In Leadership session will be open to companies interested in shaping more inclusive teams that are reflective of customer needs, built for resilience, innovation, profitability, and are sustainable into the future.

We are recruiting Diversity Advocates and re-engaging LeadHERs to facilitate tables at this event. They will share initiatives they have implemented in their own organizations that address issues related to diversity and inclusion and will serve as a source for PhocusWire throughout the coming year. Please apply here if you are interested in contributing to the growth of our industry in this meaningful way.

This 90-minute session on Monday, November 14th will be open to registered conference attendees. Capacity is limited, so register early to be included in the discussion!

See the session videos from 2021 to explore recruiting, culture and more as we navigate our way back from the brink and into the future of travel.
