Within the travel and hospitality sector, employment opportunities have been increasing at almost double the rate of the rest of the labour market since 2009. The travel sector is the UK’s third largest employer, accounting for 9.5% of total employment.
However, despite 70% of employees in the travel industry being women, there is a marked under-representation of women in senior positions, with women holding less than 40% of all managerial positions, less than 20% of general management roles and between 5-8% of board positions.
Given the success of our everywoman in Travel Awards over the last three years, we are delighted to announce the launch of our 2020 everywoman in Travel Forum to provide further learning and development opportunities for women working in the sector and help close the gap.
The event will bring together some of the leading names in industry to provide a day of insight, inspiration and networking as well as an interactive first day of training.
