Silence can be construed as many things, and we do not want ours to be misconstrued: Black lives matter and we support the fight for racial justice.
We want our work to be intentional. We have been using the last two weeks to listen, to grieve, to feel rage, and to push ourselves to think about the larger issue of how racial inequity manifests within our company and throughout travel.
In response, we have been accelerating actions around how to build a more diverse, equitable and better company. We are also evaluating ways to better support the communities in which we live and work. As we solidify our plans, we are dedicated to sharing them publicly with our industry.
We maintain a belief that the power of travel has the potential to create a more equitable and just world. We commit to demonstrate this belief in our work.
