Navigating 2SLGBTQI+ Diversity and Inclusion in the Tourism Industry Training Session

Canada’s 2SLGBTQI+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) partnership with Hospitality NL and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) are hosting Diversity & Inclusion training for the Tourism Industry. 

To support efforts in developing market-ready products, CGLCC’s Navigating 2SLGBTQI+ Diversity and Inclusion in the Tourism Industry workshop helps tourism-based businesses learn about 2SLGBTQI+ inclusion and how to effectively understand, value, and serve 2SLGBTQI+ customers and employees. An in-depth overview of the 2SLGBTQI+ travel market and best practices for welcoming 2SLGBTQI+ travellers to your community is also highlighted.
