    Showing Pride All Year Long | KHM Today

    Show Date: 06/01/2022 

    Hello and welcome to another episode of KHM Today!  News this week: Airports across the country continue to deal with delays, cancelations, and staffing shortages. This week in London the Queen's Jubilee begins (Carolyn is a huge fan of the Royal Family), celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s reign. USVI and Italy have opened completely to tourists.  

    Our first guest is Cheryl Hudak, from the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. The Cayman Islands are surrounded by natural reefs, so it's only fitting we had her on to update us on the islands and how they work with travelers for conservation efforts for National Reef Day.

    Next up, we're introducing a new segment: "Expanding the Lens," where we will discuss and uncover topics of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion with Carolyn Sekerak, Director of Marketing Strategy and Community Engagement with KHM Travel Group.  This week we are highlighting the LGBTQ+ community for the start of Pride month. Learn what you can do to make sure you are using the correct language and staying inclusive all year long.!

    Dee Riley joins us again to share what she packs in her beach bag.  Don’t know what to pack for your beach getaway? Dee & Carolyn have got your back.

    Last up, a pre-recorded conversation with Matt Whalgren for Matt's Compass: Favorite destinations for graduation trips.
