Today, the Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Centre (GTRCMC) proudly commemorates International Women’s Day by honoring the remarkable contributions of women in the tourism industry worldwide.

During the recent 2nd Global Tourism Resilience Day held in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the GTRCMC hosted a dynamic panel discussion titled “Women in Tourism Resilience.” This engaging session brought together influential women who shared their expertise and insights, emphasizing the pivotal role of women in shaping the tourism sector.

The panel explored three crucial themes: Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Empowerment and Leadership, and Networking and Collaboration. Throughout the event, attendees witnessed the extraordinary achievements of women as trailblazers and innovators, leveraging technology and driving transformative change in the tourism industry.

Minister the Hon Edmund Bartlett, Founder and Co-Chair of the GTRCMC, remarked, “On this International Women’s Day, we celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of women in tourism and their pivotal role in building a sustainable and resilient global tourism sector.”

Professor Lloyd Waller, Executive Director of the GTRCMC, emphasized, “Women play a critical role in building resilience within the tourism industry. Their resilience, adaptability, and leadership are instrumental in navigating challenges and ensuring the sustainability of tourism destinations.”

As we commemorate International Women’s Day, the GTRCMC applauds the countless contributions of women in tourism and reaffirms its commitment to championing gender equality, diversity, and inclusion. Together, we strive to create a future where every woman has the opportunity to excel and leave a lasting impact on the world of tourism.

Happy International Women’s Day to all the phenomenal women in tourism and beyond!
