LOS ANGELES, CA. – Millennials in Travel, a career development and networking organization for travel industry professionals, announced that they will begin exclusive programming for the next group of travel specialists, Gen Z in Travel. Supported by their colleagues at Millennials in Travel, Gen Z in Travel will be a unique community created for those who are only beginning to enter the workforce.
Generally born after 1997, Gen Z is known as the most diverse and inclusive generation yet. This future group of industry professionals will be a resource for those who are looking to enter the travel and hospitality industry. The mission of Gen Z in Travel will be to inspire the next wave of young professionals to pursue a career in tourism, develop an influential community and be a catalyst for impactful change in the industry. By creating an organization earlier than their predecessors, Gen Z in Travel will be better prepared to address the needs of the industry and their generation.
“Millennials in Travel began as a result of a generation in need of exclusive networking and relationship-building within the travel industry,” said Joshua Smith, director of strategic development for Millennials in Travel. “We want to strengthen the industry by starting early in the development of future travel industry leaders. We’ve assumed the role of helping to establish Gen Z in Travel over the coming years to ensure there is a collaborative approach in this quickly changing landscape. By empowering this growing segment and providing the necessary support, these relationships will result in a stronger and more resilient industry for the next few decades.”
“As someone who recently graduated and started their career in the travel industry, I know how challenging it can be to navigate potential career paths within tourism, which will be a necessity for our industry's survival,” said Derek Fine, Gen Z Advisor for Millennials in Travel. “Our goal will be to showcase the value of joining the travel industry as well as create programs to further develop career opportunities and cultivate a sense of community for Gen Z. Collectively, with support from Millennials in Travel, we have the ability to reignite an interest in the industry after two years of the pandemic.”
For those who are part of Gen Z and interested in learning more, Gen Z in Travel will be hosting a virtual happy hour series on the third Wednesday of each month at 5 p.m. PST from March to June 2022. Various topics will be discussed, including the great resignation, career paths within travel and Gen Z travel trends.
