Some 70% of the workforce at Flight Centre Travel group is female. That’s some serious girl power. The career path, support network and goals of every person is unique, so to celebrate International Women’s Day, we’ve asked a bunch of women from around the company to share a bit about their career journey so far, why they work where they do, and what advice they’ve found most powerful, be it for work, or life.
Life at FCTG is centred around our culture of celebration. Reward & Recognition is an integral part of our recipe for success, so we recognise achievements throughout the year, but the pinnacle of recognition for a job well done is our infamous Global Gathering event.
To celebrate the beginning of pride month, we sat down with two of our amazing Flighties to ask them what pride means to them and why they think it is important for corporations to recognise and celebrate diversity.
While international travel and events are enjoying a resurgence across the world, FCM Meetings and Events is on the front foot to meet the needs of an ever-changing environment. Group Travel Manager, Sarsha, and Project Coordinator, Shannon, take us behind the scenes on what skills they have had to lean on most in the past couple of years, and what they are most excited about now that the industry is back and booming.

To celebrate International Women’s Day this year we have profiled a number of remarkable women from our corporate businesses FCM, FCM Meetings & Events and Corporate Traveller. Read on to find out what International Women’s Day and #breakthebias means to these amazing women.
Today marks the annual celebration of International Women’s Day. I'm seizing today as an opportunity to reflect on all Flight Centre Travel Group is doing to #breakthebias in celebration of our global Womenwise community. In mid-2021, we launched a renewed global Diversity & Inclusion program. Our D&I program has 6 core pillars representing LGBTQI+, Mental Health, Gender Equality, Accessibility, Age, and Heritage/Race/Religion. As FCTG’s gender equality pillar, Womenwise exists to inspire all women to develop their leadership potential by providing role models, opportunity and structured support. We celebrate, connect, collaborate and create change for our women.
This week, through our Flight Centre Foundation, we partnered with not-for-profit charity LiteHaus International to donate and repurpose end-of-life technology devices to vulnerable communities across Australia.
Artwork: Sea to the Land by Natalie Booth We acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their ongoing connection to land, waters and communities. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past, present and future, and support the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices. Our Vision for Reconciliation Flight Centre Travel Group is a unique, Australian-born company dedicated to diversity and inclusion. Our Global HQ is on Yuggera Country. We take pride in being able to showcase Australia to those who want to see it. Our role, as Australia’s largest travel retailer, includes the responsibility of ensuring we do our part to respect the sacred nature of these lands, educate our people and customers, and continue to walk alongside the Traditional Owners of the Lands. Our Reconciliation Action Plan Since 2006, Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) have enabled organisations to sustainably and strategically take meaningful action to advance reconciliation. RAPs are based around the core pillars of relationships, respect and opportunities to provide tangible and substantive benefits for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The four RAP types – Reflect, Innovate, Stretch and Elevate – allow organisations to continuously develop and evolve their reconciliation commitments. Our Innovate RAP runs for two years and outlines actions for achieving our vision for reconciliation. Through the initiatives showcased in our Innovate RAP, we hope to create educated teams who understand the importance of reconciliation, to see our people develop strong relationships with all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, develop collaborative initiatives that support needs in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and collectively celebrate the traditions and journey of our First Nations People.

With international travel borders opening up, booking travel has only become more complex and our amazing Travel Sales Consultants are more important than ever in ensuring we can open up the world for our customers and get them safely to where they need to be.
