WINiT By GBTA is a global network of over 3,000 women and men focused on driving positive change for the career mobility of women in travel-related industries. The Top 50 Women in Travel recognizes a distinguished group of professionals who are promoting the important mission of WINiT by GBTA while also serving as the best and brightest in their own careers. These outstanding women leaders were selected for their contributions to the travel industry.
“Never has the mission of WINiT by GBTA been more important than now, when women have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic especially hard,” said Dorothy Dowling, chair of the WINiT Strategic Advisory Board and senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Best Western Hotels & Resorts. “These women have been selected for this esteemed list not only for the determination and focus they’ve exhibited in elevating their own careers but for their dedication to reaching a hand out to help other women rise in the industry as well.”
Through its stewardship of WINiT and throughout all of the Association’s initiatives, GBTA is committed to being the industry voice advocating for diversity, equality and inclusion, and to raising the profile for all individuals from all walks of life, religion, race, age, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities, mental health and invisible illnesses.
