THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
As the population of the United States becomes more diverse and globally more interdependent, it is important that we all become engaged as multicultural global citizens. Whether it's for gaining essential job & life skills or enhancing our contributions as international citizens, the importance of understanding and respecting cultural differences is becoming a global imperative. Multicultural travel plays an important role in understanding cultural differences. Multicultural travel provides leisure and education. It enhances the traveler’s knowledge of the histories, cultures, and contributions of diverse groups in our global society. Multicultural travel also promotes a higher quality of personal decision-making and critical thinking regarding issues of cultural pluralism. Multicultural tourism is the fastest growing segment in the travel industry. What is multicultural tourism, who actually travels and why is it important?
