Alessandra Alonso

MD and Founder, Women in Travel cic

Alessandra Alonso started Women in Travel (CIC) as a gender-focused platform at the World Travel Market flagship event in London in 2014 after a successful corporate career in travel and tourism. In 2017 she formalised the social enterprise dedicated to empowering women through employability and entrepreneurship in travel tourism and hospitality, which has since been recognised as a catalyst for change by nurturing the inclusion of all women at the heart of the industry. Alessandra is recognised as a trailblazer, supporting women throughout the travel, tourism and hospitality (TTH) industry for almost two decades, originally through the Shine consultancy & the Shine Awards. Alessandra is a regular speaker and contributor to conferences, and international events and the author of numerous articles. With Women in Travel CIC she has been featured in leading publications, from Forbes to Conde Nast and all trade media.
