Confronting Anti-Black Racism in Travel & Tourism: One Year Later

Tue, Jun 15, 2021, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EST

About the Event

In July 2020, Let’s Get Uncomfortable launched a series of discussions exploring the realities of anti-Black racism in travel & tourism and steps the industry can take to prioritize anti-racist practice in the workplace. 

Nearly one year later, what has changed in tourism? Are workplaces, marketing campaigns and boardrooms any different? What’s been done to address anti-Black racism—other than the infamous black square? 

In this latest event instalment, LGU’s Shalene Dudley, founder of Latitude Concierge Travels, will sit down with three travel professionals to discuss their personal journeys with this movement, how—or whether—industry perspectives have changed in the past 12 months, and where we go from here. 

Together with Veranda Adkins co-founder of Association of Black Travel Professionals, Elizabeth Buchanan, founder of Paradise Weddings and Linda Kelly, Flight Centre, Shalene will call in areas of the industry that have stepped up—and those who have stayed silent—during a 1-hour conversation about the crucial role anti-racism will play in the future of travel & tourism.  

The discussion will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A session, whereby participants will have the chance to ask Shalene, Veranda, Elizabeth and Linda questions. 

WHEN: June 15, 4:30-6:00 p.m. ET / 1:30-3:00 p.m. PT

Proceeds from this event will go toward compensating the panellists for their time, energy and expertise. (NOTE: TICKET PRICES ARE USD)

The event will take place on Zoom, with the link invitation sent out to attendees 24 hours prior.

We look forward to having you join us!
