Women In Tourism (WIT) and Tourism Society Scotland (TSS) are delighted to host the first official WIT event to highlight the challenges and opportunities of being a woman within the tourism sector. During the event delegates will be the first to hear the results of the survey commissioned by WIT in early January to gather thoughts and opinions from the sector on issues relating to gender equality, career development and leadership opportunities.
We will be joined by an exciting panel of female experts from across the tourism industry who will each present their thoughts on their roles and opportunities within the sector. This will then be followed by a Q&A with the panel and an excellent opportunity to pose questions to this group.
We expect this event to be popular and encourage you to sign up to confirm your place.
