Checking-IN is a community of LGBT+ professionals and allies, innovating the hospitality industry with a promise to make positive contributions to the community by making hospitality a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space for customers and employees. To achieve their goal, Checking-IN provides resources and visibly open forums to support its community members in the hospitality industry.
Checking-IN was co-founded by Will Davies and Liam Rezende. Since 2018, the pair have been hosting regular networking events, panel discussions, round table events, and publishing online content, becoming an active voice and tool for their members.
Checking-IN is seeking nominations for the 2023 50 LGBT+ Champions List, shedding light on amazing LGBT+ trailblazers in the hospitality industry. To be nominated, individuals must work in hospitality settings such as hotels, restaurants, pubs, bars, venues, serviced apartments, co-workings, and contract catering and should have made a positive impact in their workspace, strived towards inclusivity, championed LGBT+ issues, and become a role-model for the LGBT+ community.
A panel of judges will bring unique and informed perspectives to assess each nominee to select the fifty outstanding candidates for the final list. Nominations will close Friday March 31st and can be submitted online by employers, peers, team members, clients, or individuals themselves. On Wednesday May 31st, a gala event will be held to announce the published list.
