Visit Baltimore, the city’s convention and tourism association, is offering a new data analytics fellowship this fall. With the 600-hour paid internship, it will seek candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Underwritten by  global travel data companyTourism Economics, it’s part of an effort to provide hands-on experience in the destination marketing and travel economics industries for up-and-coming Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) professionals.

“There are very few BIPOC individuals working in the travel and tourism leadership space, but more specifically in the data, technology and business intelligence sector with the destination marketing community,” said Al Hutchinson, CEO at Visit Baltimore, in a statement. “We’re honored to partner with Tourism Economics to introduce this program and make real change in our industry.”   

This internship will involve working with the operations departments at Visit Baltimore and Tourism Economics. The program will provide training, professional development, seminars, and opportunities for research and analysis.

Applicants must be 18 years or older, and a resident of Baltimore City or the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.

Online applications and pay details for this position will be available later this summer, per Visit Baltimore.

The fellowship follows reinvigoration of Visit Baltimore’s Diversity Apprenticeship Program, which was supported by Guinness Open Gate Brewery. Through that program, two apprentices were recently hired to join the Halethorpe brewery and gain experience in the beer industry.

Donte Kirby is a 2020-2022 corps member for Report for America, an initiative of The Groundtruth Project that pairs young journalists with local newsrooms. This position is supported by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation.
