This project in the series will explore diversity, leadership and resilience in the visitor economy supply chain.

Experts from Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia will discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with building diverse and inclusive organisations in tourism, transport, hospitality, events and other related sectors, that can support the region’s recovery and resilience in the visitor economy.

The webinar aims to support women and future leaders in particular to engage and discuss innovations required to continue building the industry. Findings and recommendations from the project will be released later this year.

Industry practitioners, government officials, academics, educators, and students are all welcome to participate in the discussion.
