Equality in the Workplace – Travel Industry Research

Are you interested in sharing your thoughts on equality in the workplace?

Do you work within an area of the tourism industry – any aspect of travel, hospitality or events?

The University of Greenwich is carrying out research to understand how women regard opportunities to develop onto executive level posts in the industry.

It does not matter what type of organisation you work for, 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.

Your 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.

Focus groups will be held on the following dates at locations:

  • Monday 11th June 12.00 – 2.30 University of Greenwich
  • Wednesday 13th June 12.00 – 2.30 University College Birmingham
  • Friday 15th June 12.00 – 2.30 Edinburgh  (Venue to be confirmed)


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 on: [email protected]
