Abi works for Equality in Tourism as a Research Assistant. She recently graduated from the University of Leeds, having completed her Masters in Social and Political Thought.
Abi has personal experience of the gendered dynamics of the tourism industry. For years, she worked at a café in a team of young, female waitresses. During this time, she noted the different ways that she and her female colleagues were treated compared to their male counterparts. These experiences fuel her enthusiasm for working with Equality in Tourism, in order to help transform the gendered inequalities evident across the global tourism and hospitality sector.
