I am excited to see IWTTF Awards on the calendar for 2023. It is super exciting to see diversity and inclusivity as well as see DEI being recognised in this way. We know the struggles the Travel and Tourism industry has as it relates to DEI and IWTTF awards provide brands and companies with the opportunity to see those who are doing it well be highlighted and showcased and provide an example to the Travel and Tourism industry. So I am extremely happy to be a judge for the IWTTF awards!
