YTP TO: Let's Get Uncomfortable

  • Ted Rogers School of Management, TRS Commons, 7th Floor 55 Dundas Street West Toronto, ON M5G 2C3 Canada (map)

Inspired by the #MeToo Movement, YTP-TO proudly presents:


It's time for a brutally honest conversation about gender-based discrimination and harassment in Canada's travel industry. Join our panel of industry leaders and advocates to discuss sexism, workplace inequity in-destination at the service level, the need for bystander intervention, and how we can all move forward as a safer, more inclusive industry.

Hosted in partnership with Ryerson University's Ted Rogers School of Hospitality & Tourism Management, and our sponsors, G Adventures and Planeterra.

Doors open at 5pm, panel discussion begins at 5:30pm
