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

Omega Commits to Achieving Gender Parity

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.


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.
