I recently agreed to be the Membership Committee Executive Advisor for WiNiT, a new non-profit organization created by a friend of mine, Michelle (Mick) Lee, who, in her real job, is the Managing Director – Head of Global Travel Department (GTD) for Citi.
WINiT stands for Women in Travel, and Mick created it to support the career development, promotion and visibility of women in the travel industry. The organization is unique because women and men are working together to further the advancement and professional development of women in the industry.
You can join and support WINiT in several ways. You can get all the information you need by joining the LinkedIn group: WINiT-WomenIn Travel. If you are attending GBTA this Summer in Los Angeles, you are also invited to attend the first launch event — at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel on July 26 from 9am to 3pm. Go to the WINiT LinkedIn page to get more details on joining and attending the first launch event.
Join us if you want to see more women empowered to be travel industry leaders!
