ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – The World Trade Organization (GBTA) has announced that its first global delegation will launch the Diversity, Incentive, and Integration Program (DEI) for its members and partners. We select alternatives based on their strong and diverse background and the contributions and insights they will bring to GBTA members internationally. Its aim is to increase international knowledge in the business travel industry where many of the problems associated with DEI are faced by travelers and their colleagues – in the workplace, travel, meeting attendance, or managing travel needs. The committee will provide resources, curriculum, and support to make the travel industry more accessible and promote diversity, cohesion, and participation between our team and the company as a whole.
