Global Report on Women in Tourism

Second edition

Tourism has a pivotal role to play in achieving the commitments at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – including commitments to gender equality, women’s empowerment and leaving no one behind.

The aim of the Global Report on Women in Tourism – Second Edition, is to examine the key factors that contribute to gender equality in the tourism sector. It pinpoints challenges and identifies ways to mitigate inequality and harness tourism’s potential to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment worldwide.

In order to do this, the report explores the same five thematic areas as the first edition of Global Report – employment; entrepreneurship; education and training; leadership, policy and decision making; and community and civil society. Drawing on existing literature and practice from the field of gender equality and tourism, five thematic goals were established to demonstrate what gender equality and women’s empowerment in tourism would look like.
