Navigating LGBT+ Diversity & Inclusion in the Tourism Industry

21 February 2023 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 am

The global LGBT+ travel market is valued at more than US$200B annually. Canadian destinations are well-positioned to grow their share of this market.

CGLCC’s Navigating LGBT+ Diversity and Inclusion in the Tourism Industry helps businesses learn about LGBT+ inclusion and how to effectively understand, value, and serve LGBT+ customers and employees.

This workshop:

  • introduces terms and definitions regarding the diversity of LGBT+ people, discusses the impact of homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism in the workplace, and provides an opportunity to explore the topic in a safe environment
  • discusses why safe spaces are important, and what they look like and reviews the bottom line, specifically the internal and external benefits of LGBT+ inclusive space

This free workshop is made possible by the generous support of the Government of Canada through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and the Tourism Relief Fund.
