“I think the forum represents an important opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue on how women can thrive in the travel and tourism industry and how we as leaders can contribute to more diversity and inclusion in our sector. This means focusing on all aspects of the D&I conversation, not solely on gender. This forum also represents a unique opportunity to allow up and coming talent to interface with some incredibly accomplished and inspiring leaders in a country that has a legacy of pioneering and advocating for gender balance.”
