New GBTA Podcast

Super Woman: Fact or Fiction | An Industry Conversation

The pressure to “do it all” and be all things to all people while advancing their careers causes many women to feel anxiety in both their personal and professional lives. The pressure to be a “Super Woman” is unsustainable and unrealistic. How can we create a new definition of the Super Woman that is realistic and allows women to have a satisfying career along with a happy and healthy family life?

Made possible by Choice International, this podcast brings together women in the travel industry to provide their insights on important elements from Imposter Syndrome and gender equity, to the role of community, allyship and advocacy. GBTA WINiT Program Director, Bev Heinritz, discusses these topics and more with Janis Cannon, SVP Upscale Brands, Choice International.

CO2 Emissions Display in the OBT's:
Is the Information Good Enough?

April 19, 2023 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CEST

For a long time, online booking tools (OBTs) have used generic methodologies to calculate CO2 emissions at point of sale. While they allow to estimate the level of CO2 emissions, these methodologies do not allow travelers to accurately compare several airlines on a same route, and make educated choices on the greenest airline to use. At the same time, travel buyers and travel managers improve the quality of the reporting to report on air CO emissions in a more granular way, using different methodologies.
