Chicago Hosts International Gay And Lesbian Travel Association Global Convention

united chicago check-in areaUnited Airlines, an official sponsor of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) global convention, welcomed tourism professionals from more than 20 countries as they meet in Chicago for the organization's 30th annual event this week. 

IGLTA, one of the world's leading travel networks, "is dedicated to connecting and educating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) travelers and the businesses that welcome and support them along the way."

The airline has a long-standing relationship with IGLTA spanning more than 10 years. The airline said its sponsorship aligns with United's commitment to create a work environment where all its employees across the world feel included and empowered to make a measurable difference in its success.

Earlier this year, Equality Illinois named United 2013 Business Leader of the Year for its LGBT policies. In 2012, United received a perfect score for the fifth consecutive year on the 2013 Corporate Equality Index, an annual survey administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation that ranks top companies on their policies regarding LGBT employees.
