Tourism Kamloops recognizes the benefits of this course outside of tourism

Explore Edmonton and Tourism Kamloops joined the growing community of allies who have participated in the LGBT+ Diversity and Inclusion certification program. Angie Halas of Tourism Kamloops found the program beneficial, not just in the workplace, but in her local community as well.

“I appreciate that this workshop made participants reflect on our own biases in order to be a better ally and communicator in not only the tourism industry, but in the broader Kamloops community.” – Angie Halas, Visitors & Stakeholder Liaison
