Let’s Get Uncomfortable is hosting the second part of its panel on anti-Black racism in travel tomorrow – Tues., Aug 25 – from 12 to 1:30 pm (ET) or from 9 to 10:30 am (PT).

The follow-up event to Confronting Anti-Black Racism in Travel & Tourism will focus on accountability and change within companies.

  • Jodie Glean-Mitchell – anti-racism, equity, and inclusion educator and founder of REACTCanada-Race Equity Advisory Consulting & Training Inc.

This event is open to all travel professionals. Free tickets are available, though those who can pay for their ticket are encouraged to do so in an effort to help the LGU team compensate panelists.

Those who wish to contribute to the event’s conversation can share the one thing they plan on doing to be anti-racist in their work in travel & tourism, via Google Form or the LGU Facebook page.
