When GEC PR’s client Women in Travel CIC decided to run its global International Women in Travel and Tourism Forum event virtually this year, I must admit, I was apprehensive. The inaugural IWTTF that took place in Iceland in January 2020, was an in-person event, and the connections and authentic, frank debating that happened there would, I thought, be difficult to beat. Women and men from 18 countries had hedged their bets against the stormy Icelandic weather to make it there and certainly there was a sense of ‘triumph over adversity’ about getting there. Swapping tales about cancelled flights were conversational icebreakers that helped the bonding process as we discussed diversity, inclusion and our localised and global experiences of those issues.
Alessandra Alonso, the Founder of Women in Travel (CIC), invites those working in the travel industry to participate in shaping a gender inclusive industry that meets the talent and leadership needs of the 21st century by attending the International Women in Travel & Tourism Forum on 23 – 24 January 2020, in Reykjavik, Iceland.
