HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY from PATA! 

Individually, we're one drop but together we're an ocean. For International Women’s Day, the PATA ‘Press for Progress’ Portrait Series shows the commitment that each of our staff has made to help accelerate gender parity and bring awareness of these issues to our industry colleagues.

How will you #PressforProgress for #IWD2018?


 
Adrienne will talk about bridging the gender gap at the PATA Annual Summit 2018 together with a diverse lineup of women who will discuss how the travel and tourism industry can play a more active role in #GenderEquality.
