Perspective

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our Mission

As a travel company, we value diversity and strive to foster understanding and respect across cultures through our work and in our workplace. Travel encourages us to encounter different perspectives, to get outside our comfort zones, and to see the world through others’ eyes – which gives us the opportunity to experience the world in all its beautiful diversity. We are committed to increasing diversity, promoting equity, and creating a more inclusive environment where everyone feels represented and valued and where diverse perspectives are welcomed. This is part of our journey that will help us to be more understanding of ourselves and others and more connected both here in our local communities and around the world.

Odysseys’ employee-led Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee brings focus and attention to related issues both in the office and in our local community through charitable donations, communications, observances, and outreach to potential employee populations, among other efforts.

In Our Local Communities

We partner with the Y’s Education and Training Branch program to provide informational sessions about Odysseys Unlimited to their graduates and encourage them to apply for our open positions.

Odysseys’ Charitable Giving Committee has allocated funds to the DEI Committee to support organizations that encourage and support Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

A Roxbury, MA-based organization whose mission is to create the next generation of Latina leaders who are confident, competent, self-sustaining, and proud of their cultural heritage.

Works to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice. This organization was chosen with input from employees.
