Ewa Gabara

Appointed Co-Chapter Leader
At WHTT Chapter Barcelona , Spain

Ewa Gabara

Ewa Gabra is a hospitality and tourism insider by day and the content writer and copywriter by night.
The last 10 years she have spent working in hostels of different types and shades. From the party-backpacking-kind of style until the fancy-poshtel likes. The Polish native with a degree in international relations, also started her own blog with a feisty name: Don't Mess With The Receptionist. The place where you can find answer to this question: why it's worth to stay in hostels?

Ewa's appointment to WHTT, is further the organisation's mission to increase the success and engagement in the workplace for women and other underrepresented groups, and to enable companies to attract, develop and retain potential diverse talent, nurtured by a powerful community. WHTT believes that by inspiring communities to enter the industry and organizations to leverage and retain in the sector, will create more diverse and inclusive leadership. Ewa is joining the existing team lead by Luz Alvarado, Idoia Herrero, Maribel Esparcia and Ona Novo.


Amongst all the subsectors of Hospitality, Travel and Leisure industry, an average 26% of senior executives are female. At Woman in Hospitality and Trave Tech we advocate for a more diverse culture in hospitality and travel-tech organizations.
