In honour of International Women’s Day, Bannikin spotlights five travel pros using tourism to help their destinations thrive.
Today is International Women’s Day (IWD) and this year’s theme is #EmbraceEquity. The aim of this campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
Women are impacted disproportionately by the climate and economic crises, both of which amplify gender inequalities and put women at risk. Although women are impacted more heavily by economic and environmental burdens, they are at the forefront of driving change, shifting the global narrative, and discovering radical solutions.
Travel and tourism play a key role in cultural understanding. They have the power to increase climate appreciation, contribute to environmental conservation, and can have a pivotal economic impact on local communities.
In honour of #EmbraceEquity, Bannikin is celebrating five incredible women. These women are working hard to ensure travel and tourism have a positive and long-lasting impact on the destinations they love to showcase and explore.
