The mission of Visit Philadelphia is to build the region’s image, drive visitation and boost the economy. Our work is important and tourism is a serious business with a significant positive impact on jobs, the economy, and our region.
Visit Philadelphia’s Diversity Fellowship Program will create professional opportunities to increase the number of diverse people in tourism and marketing within the hospitality industry. People from diverse backgrounds will engage in a six month fellowship that provides opportunities to work in a hands-on setting promoting Philadelphia and the region’s vibrant culture. This strategic pilot program is designed to boost the number of underrepresented voices in the tourism and hospitality industry, and add to the economic lifeblood of the region.
Our vision at Visit Philadelphia is to continually build an experienced, well-rounded team that reflects the rich social tapestry of the Greater Philadelphia Region. We are looking for passionate future leaders with marketing and communications experience who bring a range of skills, life perspectives, positive energy, and diverse worldviews.
Besides an immersion into the core competencies and culture of Visit Philadelphia, fellows will have a 360-degree experience working with programming partners and agencies while creating a pipeline for future opportunities.
Working at Visit Philadelphia means being at the forefront of the tourism industry–nationally and internationally. For a quarter of a century, Visit Philadelphia has been an award winner and innovative industry leader, providing opportunities for career growth within our organization and in the tourism and hospitality sector.
