Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Travel, Tourism and Economic Development

Explore Brookhaven is set to host the 2022 Travel Unity Summit Southeast March 22-25, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta Perimeter at Villa Christina. This year's summit will focus on tactics to help destination marketers, members of the travel industry and economic development professionals incorporate diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into their own organization's strategic planning and implementation.

Explore Brookhaven expects to welcome 200 Summit attendees to the area for four days of leadership training and discussion around embracing diversity to expand tourism. Summit topics will include how to understand, identify and connect with diverse travelers, fostering welcoming communities, attracting diverse events, DEI initiatives across the Southeast and DEI implementation.

"We are excited to host the 2022 Travel Unity Summit and help the tourism industry build towards a responsible future," said Renee Areng, Executive Director of Explore Brookhaven. "The City of Brookhaven is very welcoming and believes everyone belongs here which makes Brookhaven the perfect backdrop for this year's discussion on embracing community diversity to expand tourism."

This year marks the first time a Travel Unity Summit has been held outside of the organization's home state of New York.
