  • What does the Women in Travel event mean to you?

It’s great to have an event that recognises women working within travel. On a personal level, I love to see how women in our industry have developed and are active ambassadors for travel, and events like this are a great way for us all to share that.

  • Why did C&M sponsor the event?

C&M have been involved with the Association of Woman Travel Executives (AWTE) in the UK for a number of years. I have seen this network grow and develop into a group of travel executives that have built solid business relationships, as well as become friends!

  • This is the inaugural Women in Travel Awards in Australia. Why do you think this is an important event the travel industry should embrace?

An event that helps to promote gender equality and highlights the benefits that come from employing women in roles throughout the industry should clearly be celebrated. Travel is a very welcoming industry with women competing with men for top spots, and with important events like this, we can help to make travel an example to other industries.

  • What are you looking forward to most about the event?

Catching up with old travel industry friends and making some new ones, and celebrating the great achievements of the many females working in this industry.

  • What’s the most important thing to focus on when it comes to women’s role in the travel industry?

Travel has always been an incredibly rich and diverse industry with many women holding jobs ranging all across the sector, from entry level roles all the way up to high profile Director positions. This should be celebrated, but the industry can of course do more by helping and encouraging more women to not only join the industry, but also to stay in travel for many years.

Travel Weekly congratulates all the finalists in the Women in Travel Awards. Check out who’s in the running now.

The Women in Travel Awards will be presented at a gala cocktail function on 17 November in Sydney – reserve your seat now with Earlybird rates on offer – closing today!
