Our Associates are individuals and organisations from all over the world who share the values of Equality in Tourism, in particular our commitment to gender equality in tourism. They hail from various fields – academia, industry, non-profit and many others. They are the specialists we engage on projects, the experts we go to when we need specific insight. The relationship between Equality in Tourism and our Associates is one based on mutual benefit: in particular, the sharing and exchange of information and ideas. If you’d like to find out more about becoming an Associate, visit this page.
