Women in Tourism
On 18 May 2022, our Executive Mayor, Ald (Dr) Elna von Schlicht addressed women working in tourism at a road show, held in Wellington. The event was arranged by Women in Tourism Western Cape and aimed to create a platform for women in similar fields to socialise with peers, seek mentorship opportunities and network.
The Women in Tourism Western Cape is a membership-based association, whose objectives are to raise the profile of women in tourism through education, empowerment, and growth; provide women in tourism with the respect, recognition, and representation they deserve. To highlight challenges faced specifically by women in tourism. To lobby for the advancement of women in tourism. To provide leadership and role models for young people wishing to enter the tourism sector.
CWDM continues to support the tourism industry and truly believe that we can work together toward economic recovery by building meaningful, committed, and strong partnerships.
