Do you work in tourism, events or hospitality?

Dr Menna Jones and Dr Maria Gebbels from the Marketing, Events and Tourism Department at the University of Greenwich are carrying out research to understand how women regard opportunities to develop onto executive level posts in the industry.

If you would be interested in sharing your thoughts on equality in the workplace, please get in touch.

It does not matter what type of organisation you work for within tourism, we would be interested in hearing your thoughts.  We also want to hear from men – how you perceive opportunities available to women in your workplace is also relevant.

Involvement in a focus group would give the research team an opportunity to understand your thoughts on skills required for leadership roles, and how support could be made available that would be recognised in the industry.

A focus groups will be held on the following date, in the following location:

•             Friday 15th June  12.00 – 2.30 Edinburgh Napier University

Food and drink will be provided and travel will be re-imbursed to the value of £10.00.  If you are interested in participating in the research, please contact Dr Menna Jones by e-mail
