Event: Maiden Women In Tourism summit brings a much-needed female voice to grow tourism…

Women in Tourism Summit is a platform that aims to serve as a strategic driver to promote gender equality and women empowerment.

The first edition of the Women in Tourism summit was successfully executed today, June 21st at the Accra International Conference Center.

According to the organisers, Women in Tourism Summit is a platform that aims to serve as a strategic driver to promote gender equality and women empowerment.

The summit was organised to highlight the challenges and opportunities that exist for female tourism personnel in Ghana.

Currently, women are under-represented in the tourism sector as with other key developmental sectors in Ghana. According to United Nation World Tourism Organization, women make up the majority of the tourism workforce in the most region of the world and yet they are concentrated in the lowest paid and the lowest status job in tourism.

Some personalities believe that the reason for this is that many women especially are not passionate about the business aspect of tourism and thus do not take active participation in it.
