United Airlines is an official sponsor of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) Global Convention being held in Chicago, 2-4 May.

The convention, the organizations 30th annual event, welcomes tourism professionals from more than 20 countries.

IGLTA, one of the worlds 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.

With more than 85,000 co-workers from around the world, United proudly celebrates the richness of not just our employees diverse backgrounds, but our customers too, said Dave Hilfman, Uniteds senior vice president of worldwide sales. As we say, diversity flies with us. And United is honored to sponsor IGLTAs convention in Chicago this year.

The airline has a long-standing relationship with IGLTA spanning more than 10 years.

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.
