This self-paced course will help you explore the key issues related to women’s rights and gender equality in tourism. Women are strongly represented in the tourism labour market. In many countries, the employment rate for women in tourism is above the average rate in other sectors. However, many women are employed in low-paid services. This is neither good for the women employed, nor is it an advantage for the company. With this course you will explore real stories of four women who have gained quality of life through improved working conditions and thus helped the company they are working for to be more successful. Enjoy!
The course is intended for tourism professionals in management positions and anyone interested in the topic.
