NEW BLOG POST: My Thoughts on the Lack of Color in the Travel Industry #linkinbio
It's a discussion that I get tagged in almost daily in Facebook travel groups, so it was long overdue that I put all my thoughts in one place.
Blogging is no longer monolithic, and POC influencers exist on every scale of the spectrum.
In a world that tries to paint everything as black and white, there is so much going on in the gray.
The gray of this situation is that I’m doing my best to hustle and grind and make my brand known in a very whitewashed travel industry, regardless of my inherent disadvantage.
But the working twice as hard to get half the recognition gets old quick.
Brands, marketers, PR reps, and beyond — if you’re continually contracting the same race, religion, gender, and lifestyle brand of bloggers, you’re doing such a disservice to the public.
Exercising diversity isn’t something that should be seen as a chore. You should be excited to amplify the voices of minorities, because it will add a different tone, pun intended, [and market, hello $$$] to the mix.
I also tackle the pervasive "PUT ME ON" culture, shout out some of the strongest names in the POC blogging space, and give some insight into how we can solve this issue on a larger scale. *5-minute read
