Event description
This one-day symposium discusses how tourism stakeholders can respect equality along their supply chain.

About this Event

Equality in tourism has many different dimensions: From gender equality and non-discrimination of migrant workers to the respect of children’s rights. From decent and family-friendly working hours and equal wages to women empowerment. And from accessible tourism products to the participation of local communities and vulnerable groups in tourism development processes, to name only a few.

With its extensive and fragmented supply chain in various destinations, high seasonality and day and night service demand, with more and more areas of work being outsourced and put on temporary work, respecting equality can be challenging for tourism stakeholders.

How can tour operators implement equality along the supply chain? How can they put aspects of equality in practice on an operational level? How can existing challenges be tackled?

The Symposium offers possibilities to discuss various aspects of equality in tourism and will cover topics like gender equality, fair working conditions and outsourcing challenges.

The focus of the symposium lies on

  • an inspirational introduction of concepts for fair and equal working conditions in business operations from various sectors
  • the sharing of concrete best practice examples and experiences how to actively integrate equality aspects into tourism practice, as well as
  • creating an intensive exchange of ideas and mutual learning on how to develop and implement decent working conditions along the tourism supply chain and how to create appropriate tourism offers to support equality

Upcoming ideas and practical, already implemented approaches are collected and documented as inspiration and assistance for tourism businesses.

Moderator of the day: Frank Oostdam, President ANVR
