Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Discover The Palm Beaches

Rooted in the belief that travel fosters understanding and appreciation toward people and cultures, Discover The Palm Beaches strives to cultivate a tourism experience that is reflective of its Community and where all visitors always feel welcome.

Discover The Palm Beaches is committed to doing our part in the quest for justice and equality in America. We are proactive in our rejection of racism and discrimination in every form; we celebrate diversity and foster a culture of inclusion; and will continue to apply and live by these principles.

We are a business that promotes travel. Travel, in and of itself, is about exploration - both outwardly and internally, experiencing new cultures, enriching the mind, and more than anything, meeting new people. Travel brings people of different backgrounds, life experiences and perspectives together. Many times, cross-cultural exposure, and the realization of our shared experiences and learnings become the most memorable and treasured ones in our individual life journeys.  

We stand as leaders of our tourism and hospitality community to encourage residents and visitors alike to cherish and support equitable actions that encourage diversity, and foster inclusion through their businesses and practices.  We promote respect and understanding for the betterment of our community as a whole. It is vital that we continue to listen and learn so that we can do better to come together toward a just society. We must continue to advocate to have all voices heard and respected. Together, we can and will do better. 

Collectively, as an organization, we believe that the expertise, values, and perspectives of a diverse and inclusive organization are fundamental to expanding the reach and impact of our advocacy, marketing, and educational efforts. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind in our organization, and we advocate for similar thinking in our community and nation. 

We are making active efforts to ensure that equity and inclusion are at the heart of everything that we do, beginning with the creation of an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee

Discover The Palm Beaches has created an internal committee focused on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. The mission of the committee, as supported by DTPB’s strategic plan, is to foster a culture emblematic of these values – one that celebrates and affirms the contributions of people of every race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, socioeconomic status, ability, and more. The role of the EDI committee is to implement processes and practices within DTPB and the community at large. It’s a promise that the organization will continue welcoming, respecting, listening, and evolving as a leadership organization while ensuring that DTPB staff, business partners, industry leaders and the communities we serve in Palm Beach County pursue the same principles and have a voice in how we go about this effort.  
Our areas of focus are:
  • Marketing, Content & Sales
  • Industry/Community Relations
  • Staffing & Recruitment
  • Culture & Communications
Our goal in perpetuity is to be a welcoming, nurturing, and inclusive community for all who work, live, and visit The Palm Beaches.
