GBTA lance un nouveau comité mondial axé sur la diversité, l'égalité et l'inclusion

Alexandria, VA (January 6, 2020) – The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), the world’s largest business travel association, announces the launch of a new global committee. The Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Committee, comprised of global members, will strive to bring to light many of the issues facing travelers and coworkers in the workplace, whilst traveling or attending meetings, or handling travel needs.

Committee Chair J. Grant Caplan, U.S. and Vice Chair Carol Fergus, U.K, along with Vice Chairs from Canada and Latin America (to be named) will lead the first-of-its-kind globally formed GBTA Committee. Today, GBTA sent out the committee application to its global community.  The committee will provide the resources, education and support to enable the travel industry to embrace and drive diversity, equality and inclusion within organizations.

“Our goal is to be the industry voice advocating for diversity, equality and inclusion, and to raise the profile for all individuals from all walks of life, religion, race, age, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities, mental health and invisible illnesses. We want to challenge the status quo and provide a visible platform to raise and address these issues in our industry,” said Dave Hilfman, interim Executive Director GBTA, adding “by tackling the uncomfortable, we want to foster an open, transparent, and welcoming arm, where trust and integrity will be at the forefront of our agenda.”
