Women’s empowerment during the COVID19 recovery

Centre Stage Project

The UNWTO Centre Stage Project ‘Women’s empowerment during the COVID-19 recovery’, aims to strengthen, coordinate and focus work towards gender equality in tourism governmental institutions and businesses as they recover from the pandemic and is currently being implemented with the kind support of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany and UN Women.

Through the Centre Stage project, UNWTO supports 4 National Tourism Administrations, tourism  businesses, NGOs and tourism organizations from Jordan, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and Mexico, as they implement a one-year action plan for women’s empowerment , including targeted training programmes, measures to boost female career progression, improvements to the legal framework and the collection of sex-disaggregated tourism employment data.
