2017 everywoman in Travel Awards

 

 

everywoman announces the launch of the everywoman in Travel Awards. The programme will recognise inspirational women at all stages of their career and uncover role models to help encourage more women and young girls to consider a career in the Travel industry. 

Nominations for the 2017 everywoman in Travel Awards have now closed.

A growing body of research demonstrates that gender balanced teams produce better business outcomes and create a more sustainable future for an organisation’s entire workforce, with a direct and positive impact on the bottom line. Critically, with Brexit the industry needs to attract the best possible talent, from school leavers, grads and senior women, whilst at the same time ensuring it develops and inspires all those already working in the sector.

 

why nominate 

Becoming a finalist is an excellent way to raise both individual and company profiles as well as celebrate career achievements and recognition within the industry.
