Albatros Expeditions’ Diversity & Inclusion Manifest
The unique areas of our planet which we visit are symbols of peace and should be enjoyed and protected by everyone. As we experience the diversity of nature and its ever changing landscapes, we are proud to also honor diversity and inclusion among our guests, staff, and crew.
At Albatros Expeditions we celebrate diversity and see it as a strength in our teams. We believe in embracing diversity and inclusion in our office teams, our expedition teams, our crew, and our customer base, for this expands our knowledge, our understanding of the world, and how we communicate with one another. We believe diversity should be at the heart of any travel experience. As Mark Twain captured it so well “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts”.
Hence, Albatros Expeditions does not discriminate based on culture, nationality, sexual orientation, religious belief, gender, disabilities, or age and does not tolerate unjust behaviors. However, as safety is our main priority due to the remoteness of the places we visit, there are necessary requirements for guests and staff to abide to to ensure everyone’s safety.
Our office-based staff and expedition guides represent ca 25 different nationalities, and a mix of races, cultures, sexual orientations, backgrounds, ages, and religions.
For us, it is about creating the best possible groups and working conditions for our teams in order to give our guests the best possible experiences. We do this by addressing and combatting barriers on every level, by creating diverse and inclusive teams and by fostering the equal and meaningful participation of all staff and crew on all levels; as well as by creating safe spaces for everyone on our vessels.
Diversity and inclusion are not just buzzwords for us – they are a commitment to our staff, crew, and our guests. For this reason, we are also proud members of IGLTA, the world's leading network of LGBTQ+ welcoming tourism businesses.
