New online female tourism speaker directory

A new website which includes a dedicated female tourism speaker directory has been launched by Women in Tourism (Australia).

“The new website is an information hub for the industry in relation to issues of gender balance,” said Women in Tourism co-founder Holly Galbraith.

“It showcases women in order to create opportunities for them and highlights relevant events and opportunities for members to participate in.”

According to research by Dr Catherine Khoo, male speakers outnumbered female by three-fold at United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) events.
