On the 8th of March, we celebrate International Women’s Day. This is a global day for celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Every year has a different theme, provided by the UN. This year it is all about gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow, recognising the contribution of women and girls around the world leading the charge on climate change adaptation.
Most of the workforce in the tourism sector is women, many of whom have stepped up during the pandemic to become entrepreneurs and spread their wings. Others have shown much resilience in their pursuit to keep tourism afloat and now leads the road to recovery. We salute all of these amazing women, who inspire and encourage other females along the way!
