Co-creating equitable, diverse and inclusive travel and tourism (CrEDIT)

Start date

August 2022

End date

March 2023


This project aims to draw on existing research on EDI in travel and tourism (T&T) and apply them to industry through bringing together voices from diverse travel businesses and senior leaders of small, medium and large T&T organisations. It aims to engage with these key stakeholders towards the creation of an EDI-specific knowledge and resources hub and seeks to co-design an EDI toolkit that will act as a blueprint to support organisations and policy makers towards achieving their EDI agenda.

Through exchange of ideas and best practices, the workshops will help identify key challenges and barriers inhibiting our understanding of EDI in T&T and pilot strategies and interventions to foster inclusive organisational cultures, achieve representation and progression of diverse groups (ethnicity, gender, age, etc.) across all areas of management in the industry.
