Talented individuals urged to enter everywoman in Travel Awards

The annual everywoman in Travel Awards seeks to celebrate the career achievements of female talent in the travel industry, to champion the value that gender equality brings to business, and to demonstrate to young women how fruitful a career in travel can be.


There are 15 different categories, including: Entrepreneur; Team Leader; Male Agent of Change; and the One to Watch, aimed at female students and apprentices.


TTG Media sponsors a category for young women in travel, aligning with its own Tomorrow’s Travel Leaders initiative.


Last year’s winners included Olympic Holidays’ chief executive Clare Tobin who was named Leader of Change and easyJet Captain Kate McWilliams, who became the world’s youngest female captain at the age of 26, and was named overall Woman of the Year 2018.


Karen Gill MBE, co-founder of everywoman – an organisation that works for the advancement of women in business – said: “We launched these awards to celebrate the career achievements of women in the sector and to bring visibility to the senior roles available to women.


“Extensive research has proven the importance of female role models and how showcasing champions of the industry helps to attract, retain and develop women into travel.


"The industry faces unprecedented challenges in the face of Brexit so, more than ever, it needs to appeal to the agile talent that will innovate and navigate.”


Entries for the awards close on June 24, 2019, and the awards ceremony will take place in London on November 13, 2019.


The awards are free to enter at everywoman.com/events-awards/2019 and finalists are invited to the lunchtime ceremony free of charge.
