Encounters at Eye Level: Tackling Racism in the Tourism Value Chain
Experts' Inputs and a Good Practice Example - Creating Awareness and Taking Action
10 December 2020, 2:00 - 3:00 pm CET
Structural racism often happens unintentionally – also in tourism - and can be actively avoided.
In the jubilee year of the independence of many African countries and on Human Rights Day, the Roundtable Human Rights in Tourism wants to give some food for thought on the following questions:
How did colonialism lead to structural discrimination? To what extent does this affect the tourism industry today, and what can an SME tour operator do about it?
The Roundtable will discuss these questions with Martinique Lewis (Black Travel Foundation) and Yvonne Küpper from the tour operator Fairaway.
This webinar is explicitly targeted at SME tour operators and has the following objectives:
- Know the history: Understand the impact of colonialism
- Create awareness: Learn where we act racist without wanting to
- Take action: Small steps towards anti-racism in your business and value chain
