At present, women are under-represented in tourism as with other main developmental sectors in Ghana. As per United Nation World Tourism Organization, women comprise majority of the workforce in tourism in the region of the world and yet they are concentrated in the lowest paid and the lowest status job related to tourism.
Women in Tourism arranged its year end meeting and gala dinner organized on Sunday December 2, 2018 at Accra Tourism Information Center in Accra.
The event was to take the activities and programs to the culmination of Women in Tourism in the year 2018 and highlight on the activities for the year 2019. Also, was to feast and treat the Children of the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind to food, drinks and gift items for the Christmas festivities.
The president of the Women in Tourism group, Nancy Quartey Sam (Mrs.) in a short speech, stated that with tourism being one of the most profitable sectors that Ghana can boast about, her 30-year experience in tourism disclosed that there are many women in the sector who have the passion to move the sector forward.
According to her, “these women only need a push in realizing their potentials and realizing their goals.” She asserted that the summit will not only make more women independent, at the same time it will heighten the country’s financial status.
