In fact, this is not only an occasion for displaying the success and the accomplishment of a single operator, but it will also be an occasion for setting the example of the standards today necessarily required, in the matter of gender equality in tourism.
In addition, completing the questionnaire will be useful in gathering a good set of information and new gender-related data about tourism and hospitality businesses.
Why is this so important?
It is the first time that data about gender in tourism are collected.
Moreover, it will be one of the first occasions in which these results can be studied by experts and academics.
Finally, it is an opportunity to get to a wider vision of the future of more equal tourism, and the side where we want to stand
