Empowering women in the travel industry

Our event and tourism researchers are also tackling gender issues in the travel industry. They are studying the barriers encountered by women seeking leadership opportunities and are hoping to develop best practices for corporate policies that support women’s needs for promotion.



SHHS event and tourism researchers use our deep connections and partnerships with local and state governments and hospitality industry corporations to complete their projects and move the industry forward.
