I am excited to be part of the International Women in Travel and Tourism Forum on 27th June, as it celebrates its fifth year leading conversations on gender diversity across the industry.  Throughout my 40-year career in travel, I’ve been fortunate to benefit from both female and male personal and professional role models and mentors, and am now committed to paying it forward, helping future female leaders excel, and encouraging supportive male allies. I’m looking forward to meaningful debate, impactful insight and connecting with like-minded women and men who champion diversity, equity and inclusion in our industry.
