C. I. Travel Group, the Channel Islands’ leading travel company, has signed and committed to the new Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) Diversity Charter.

The Charter pledges to create inclusive, accepting and welcoming environments for employees working across the travel industry sector. TTG was established in 1953 as the world’s very first weekly travel trade newspaper and has since become a valued resource and voice for the travel trade.

The new Diversity Charter follows the launch of TTG LGBT in 2015 which is a network for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and allies working in travel. The charter aims to take this work a step further to include other aspects of inclusivity.

The charter plans to create inclusion for not only gender and sexual orientation, but disability, age, religious beliefs and racial or ethnic origin. These groups have been selected as per the EU non-discrimination directives. Commenting on its launch, TTG editor Sophie Griffiths said: "We are incredibly lucky to work in a sector that is largely inclusive and welcoming of diversity, but the survey we conducted highlighted that there is still work to be done."

“C. I. Travel Group welcome the introduction by Travel Trade Gazette of their Diversity Charter and I am pleased, on behalf of the whole team, to sign up to the six pledges it contains. We are committed to maintaining a workplace environment where all of our employees are treated with respect and feel valued by their colleagues. I would urge all other travel businesses in the Channel Islands to commit to this Charter."

The results of the survey carried out by TTG, which was conducted in partnership with Out Now Consulting earlier in 2017, showed that of the 35% of respondents who identified as lesbian, gay or bisexual, 8% said they were only out to a few colleagues, and 5% said they were not out to anyone. Of the 73% who said they were out to all colleagues, 17% confessed they felt that they couldn’t come out at work for more than 5 years. For these reasons the charter has been introduced.

C. I. Travel Group is proud to support this initiative and, in line with their on-going commitment to diversity and equality within the work place, the TTG Diversity Charter has been signed by Managing Director Robert Mackenzie.

Robert Mackenzie, commented, "C. I.
