Sponsor Spotlight: Flight Centre Australia CBR!One of the things we love so much about hosting Fair Day is being able to connect Canberra's LGBTIQ communities with organisations and businesses that share and celebrate their values. Fair Day is about discovering new things, not just for members of the public but for Council staff and volunteers too. We sat down with one of our Supporting Sponsors, Flight Centre, to find out why Fair Day and Canberra's LGBTIQ communities mean so much to them.
"Flight Centre is the largest travel retailer in the Southern Hemisphere, but it’s not our size that makes our company, it’s our people. Over the 30+ years we have been in business, we have worked to build an environment where our people feel supported to be and celebrate who we are as individuals. This strong culture of diversity and inclusion extends to the experience our customers have when planning and booking their holidays with us. We strive to create an environment for both our staff and customers that is fun, safe, accepting, and above all, comfortable for customers from diverse backgrounds, genders, ages, ethnicities, sexual preferences and cultural groups.” Andrew Green, Area Manager Canberra.
Flight Centre ‘came out’ publically and embraced the marriage equality vote in 2017. By supporting and celebrating diversity and inclusion in their people and more broadly their customers, they have achieved overall success and growth of in business over the many years they have been operating in Canberra. We are super excited to have the two Flight Centre Businesses in the Canberra Centre supporting CBR Fair Day and look forward to celebrating with them and all of Canberra’s wonderful LGBTIQ communities. See you all there for some fun in the sun!
