“We can only go everywhere from here.” This was something that was said in Christine and Bex’s preparatory conversation for this episode, and it really is the foundation for this hour. The pandemic, while turbulent for the travel industry, also acted as an equalizer. This is a conversation about the possibilities that are alive because of that equalizing effect.
This conversation is full of information for both travelers and industry professionals alike. It was recorded in March on International Women’s Day, and the two women discuss digital equality, representation, and brand transparency as a vehicle for change.
Bex Shapiro has been a force for change in the travel industry. She recently left a four-year gig at Intrepid Travel as their Global Social Media Manager.
