Women in Hospitality and Tourism in Asia
One billion women will enter the global workforce in the next decade. The hospitality and tourism sector is one of the fastest growing service sectors in the world and in Asia this growth is unprecedented. So what? The “Women in Hospitality and Tourism in Asia” conference, in Singapore on 7 March 2014, will look at what these trends mean in terms of opportunities for women, the implications for business and governments, and what solutions and innovations exist to empower the women who work in the industry. To train, to empower, to employ and to promote.
The conference will provide a platform for engagement and sharing of best practices for an audience committed to the cause of women’s empowerment through learning. The conference will bring together subject matter experts from across the Asia-Pacific, who will share their knowledge, and celebrate opportunities for women in hospitality and tourism in Asia.
The conference is relevant to members of the hospitality and tourism industry, NGOs, students, government representatives and anyone with an interest in women’s empowerment, training and development, or hospitality and tourism.
The Women in Hospitality and Tourism in Asia conference is a not-for-profit event. All proceeds from the conference will be donated to charities and social enterprises which benefit women in Asia and where possible the money will support projects which deliver hospitality and tourism skills training to marginalised women.
Women in Hospitality and Tourism in Asia is organized by Diageo Plan W.
