Navigating LGBT+ Diversity & Inclusion in the Tourism Industry
30 March 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
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.
- 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.
