Women in Travel CIC, the social enterprise dedicated to empowering women through employability and entrepreneurship in the travel and hospitality industry, has announced the launch of BAME Women in Travel’s Corporate Partnerships.
The new Partnership scheme will see BAME Women in Travel work with committed organisations to create tailored solutions that increase the level of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) inclusion in the workplace.
Corporate Partners will be guided by BAME Women in Travel to accomplish the following four key strategic goals, which support BAME Women in Travel’s core purpose of addressing racial inequality as a societal, moral and business issue:
1. Setting tangible targets to increase BAME representation in the travel and hospitality industry
2. Breaking the BAME glass ceiling by boosting the profile of existing industry employees
3. Raising the profile of existing BAME Women in Travel through ‘Breakthrough to Excellence’ spotlights and collaborative events
4. Establishing best practice guidelines and supporting cross-sector Women in Travel networks and interest groups to galvanise change in matters such as ethnicity pay gaps and talent pipelines.
