2023 Women In Tourism Luncheon

Date: Wednesday, September 20
Place: The Oar Restaurant, 530 Muskoka Road N. Gravenhurst
Time: 12:30pm to 2pm

RTO12 will launch its first Co-Creation Lab session with a special luncheon to honour women who work in the regional tourism sector!

The TCCL is a dynamic tool introduced by RTO12 as part of the Regenerative Tourism Strategy to engage direct and indirect stakeholders in the development of innovative solutions for our sector and for our communities.

With women making up the majority of the workforce in the global tourism industry, women who work in the regional tourism sector will be invited to provide essential feedback at the luncheon into employment, training and housing topics, including the social enterprise components of the proposed Catalyst Housing project. 

Women business owners, employees and those who work ‘in the trenches’ of the regional tourism sector are welcome to attend. Luncheon organizers also welcome the participation of RTO12 CEO James Murphy, who will present closing remarks.
