New Global Recruitment Hub for LGBTI Travel Professionals Launched
LGBTI professionals in the tourism industry can link-up with travel companies worldwide thanks to a new partnership between The Gay European Tourism Association and the LGBTI recruitment website, myGwork.com
myGwork, which promotes itself as “a Linkedin for LGBTI professionals”, was established last year by twin brothers Adrien and Pierre Gaubert in response to problems experienced by LGBTI employees. The site allows LGBTI professionals to create profiles and companies to post job opportunities.
The new partnership with GETA will help to create a tourism element to the website, linking GETA’s 4,200 business members to its thousands of LGBTI consumers as well as gay professionals throughout the world. It is open to businesses and LGBTI professionals worldwide.
“As Europe’s authority on LGBTI tourism, we place innovation at the heart of our activities” said Carlos Kytka, Executive Director of GETA. “In recent months we have helped launch Europe’s first LGBTI language courses in Spain, partnered with the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office to publish LGBTI travel advice and created the first multi-national LGBTI travel marketing service in collaboration with one of the world’s top PR agencies. This new initiative with myGwork is another advance in improving LGBTI travel in for businesses, employees and travellers”.
Pierre Gaubert said “myGwork exists to empower LGBTI professionals and we hope our partnership with GETA will help us meet this commitment in the tourism industry“
