Our resources cover a wide range of inclusive best practices, pragmatic and insightful tools and impactful initiatives across our industry.
Phase 1: The toolkit has been created in collaboration with Members of the WiHTL and Diversity in Retail’s Race & Ethnicity Committee and includes topics such as being an authentic and active ally, understanding and unlearning biases, calling out non-inclusive behaviour and how to navigate conversations about race.
Within the toolkit there is a range of helpful materials, including tips on how to establish your group, industry case studies to share best practice, and strategies for engaging with senior leadership.
Now in its fourth year, this edition of the index is again in partnership with The MBS Group and features Women To Watch & Role Models for Inclusion in the Hospitality travel and leisure sector.
