Well done to AWTE in conjunction with the University of London (and all the other contributors) on producing this report. This is clearly a great start to openly address and hopefully achieve the Davies Quota. I agree that next year when compiling the report, we ought to widen the number of represented industry sectors, perhaps limiting the companies within these sectors to 4. Widen it to airlines, car rental, OTA's, so to provide a more a more concise and accurate picture of the entire industry.
The UK travel sector has seen an increase in the influence of women in senior management roles in the last decade – that was one of the findings of the Association of Women Travel Executives (AWTE) “Women in Travel Empowerment Index” launched for the first time in London today The cruise sector, which had 15% of its board of directors as female in 2005, has seen that figure rise to 29% in 2015. Tour Operators too have seen an increase in female directors from 10% in 2005 to 20% in 2015.
