Equality in Tourism is an independent, non-profit women’s organisation dedicated to ensuring women have an equal voice in and share of the benefits from tourism globally. We provide gender specialist advice, capacity building and innovation through a network of experts. Engage us to facilitate gender equality in tourism.
