In an effort to address the need to acknowledge and empower Indian women in the travel, tourism and hospitality, Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) is set to organise a conclave on role of women in the hospitality industry in association with Women in TAAI & Tourism (WITT).

In order to address and acknowledge the contribution of women, last year, the Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI), the largest and oldest travel trade organisation in India, had initiated the formation of Women in TAAI and Tourism, a body to highlight the important role being played by women in this crucial industry.

The core objective behind the formation of WITT was to bring together the women in travel tourism and hospitality industries to join hands in empowering the women of India to become entrepreneurs.

As part of this plan, TAAI has joined hands with WITT to organise the WITT Conclave on May 4 in New Delhi. President of TAAI, Jyoti Mayal says the first conclave aims to leverage the Indian travel tourism and hospitality industry to empower women with the opportunity to fulfill their economic and individual potential while growing the sector.

“This sector has a huge value chain and an unmeasurable deliverance scope, which we all definitely need to invest in. This is the first ‘Mission with A Vision’ and we intend to hold many such in India & abroad,’’ Mayal says.

Jay Bhatia, Vice President of TAAI, says that TAAI will act as a facilitator to make women equal stakeholders in the nation’s development along with providing skill development and employability opportunities to women. He also added that workshops and events will also be held, which will not only be limited to the urban area of India but the rural part of India as well.

Bettaiah Lokesh, Secretary-General of TAAI, adds that since Mayal is also the Chairperson of the Tourism & Hospitality Skill Council (THSC), the conclave is being organised under her leadership. The strength of both TAAl & THSC is being utilised in order to focus on tourism and the skilling perspective in this process, he adds.

Lokesh also says that TAAI also intends to deliberate upon excelling and supporting the working women in the travel, tourism & hospitality sector along with encouraging more to join.

TAAI says that the May 4 conclave will focus on not only women but also the men, as it strongly believes there is a huge interdependence between both sexes and the support of both them extended to TAAI is essential to empower women and be powered together to coexist in the society.
