This answer starts with quite a personal reason. Having been raised by a single mother, I am a strong advocate for equity for women in the workplace. In addition, I identify as BIPOC, so am aware of the struggles other elements of diversity face, and the value a diverse workforce brings.
What’s more, my values strongly align with using travel, tourism and hospitality to drive positive change around the world. In fact, from my 6.5 years at G Adventures, this is the biggest lesson I will take for the rest of my life.
In closing, I am honoured to be a speaker and provide allyship on behalf of TourRadar.
