As we honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. this MLK Day (U.S. observed Jan 16) and his unwavering commitment to diversity and inclusion, it is important to reflect on the ways in which these values are reflected in the tourism industry. From the diverse destinations we visit, to the inclusive practices of hotels and tour companies, embracing diversity in tourism not only honors Dr. King's legacy but also enriches the travel experience for all.
A company at the forefront of this is Tourism Diversity Matters. Tourism Diversity Matters (TDM) is a leader in promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the tourism and events industry. TDM focuses on four main pillars of activity: apprenticeships, workforce development, DEI, and research and data. The organization aims to collaborate with industry partners and research institutions to create effective DEI strategies that can be implemented for organizational success.
