Diversity in Leadership Program

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

Monday, November 13

You know all the stats by heart: diverse organizations are more nimble, more innovative, better at achieving goals and more relevant to their customers. So what are we doing to drive sustainable success for travel tech companies? This year “Cultivating Diverse Cultures” will be the topic of our Diversity in Leadership Program. A host of contributors and Diversity Advocates will share initiatives they have implemented in their own organizations that address issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion and will provide some actionable takeaways for you to consider implementing in your own organization.

Join us Monday, November 13th. This session will be open to registered conference attendees. Capacity is limited, so register early to be included in the discussion.

We are recruiting Diversity Advocates 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.

2023 Agenda

The Diversity in Leadership session will take place on Monday, November 13, 12:30 PM to 2 PM.
Program details are in progress; stay tuned for updates soon!

Let Your Voice Be Heard

In Phocuswright-style, we'll deliver data and trends, brilliant leaders, discussions, challenges and calls-to-action … all designed to encourage growth and smart thinking around tough topics.

If you would like to contribute and can share your own initiatives toward Diversity in Leadership as an official Diversity Advocate and/or LeadHER, please email Kimberly Newbury or
