Equality in Tourism, a new women’s network dedicated to ensuring that women have an equal voice in tourism and an equal share in its benefits, has launched with the release of a report that challenges the industry to start taking gender equality seriously.
We are drawing together research evidence and knowledge of current practice in gender equality in the private sector. We’d like to hear from operators, hoteliers and researchers about initiatives.
We offer a detailed programme to support gender equality measures in tourism companies and organisations that want to do more to include gender equality in their activities and operations.
Training is key to progressing gender equality, so we are developing material that will establish the essential components of gender training for the tourism sector.
