The Institute for Tourism, in cooperation with the University of Westminster and Equality in Tourism International, UK, is organizing the conference Women in Tourism: Lessons Learned or Lessons Forgotten?, which will be held from April 19 to 21, 2023 in Split.
The keynote speakers of the conference are Dr. Stroma Cole (Yes We Can - Beyond Empowerment) and Dr. Irena Ateljević (Women of Our Past and Women for Our Future: Feminine Leadership for the Regenerative Path of Sustainable Tourism). More keynote speakers to be confirmed.
The role of women in tourism is mostly viewed through the prism of gender inequality, connected with the continuous need for women's empowerment as important stakeholders in the tourism industry. Undoubtedly, that is a hugely important agenda as the lowest paid jobs and the jobs holding the least status in tourism are mostly occupied by women (1). Yet, with this conference we aim to move our gaze towards more positive stories and a more powerful view of women’s role in tourism. The key aim of this conference is to demonstrate and celebrate the multiple roles and positions of women in tourism.
