Omega World Travel, Inc. Commits to Achieving Gender Parity by 2030


Omega World Travel Launches Omega Go App

Fairfax, VA– November, 7, 2018 - This November, in partnership with the Paradigm for Parity® coalition, Omega World Travel announced its commitment to achieving gender parity throughout its corporate leadership structure by 2030.

“We are proud to partner with the Paradigm for Parity® movement and work towards fully addressing the gender imbalance prevalent in corporate leadership positions,” said CEO, Gloria Bohan. By Partnering with Paradigm for Parity,


Omega World Travel has committed to:

  • Eliminating or minimizing unconscious bias in the workplace
  • Significantly increase the number of women in senior operating roles, with the near term goal of at least 30% representation in all leadership groups; with an ultimate goal that is full gender parity of 50/50
  • Measuring targets and maintaining accountability by providing regular progress reports
  • Basing career progress on business results and performance, rather than physical presence in the office
  • Providing sponsors, not just mentors, to women well positioned for long term success.


Signing on with Paradigm for Parity makes sense for Omega. Omega is not only a Woman Owned Diverse company, Diversity is at the forefront of our mission statement.  Furthermore, Omega’s executive team is already 40% women; Omega is well on the way to 50% full gender parity.  Omega is also fully engaged with Million Women Mentor’s and Stem Connector. This year, we mentored a business through the Million Women Mentor program with Wells Fargo and it was a huge success.  Omega is proud to be a part of such an elite group that has signed on to make more women part of the C-Suite by 2030.
