TD aims to inspire women in travel

TD, a leading travel trade news agency, aims to inspire more women (and men) in the travel industry with features highlighting the incredible stories of women in travel who are successful in their own right – from prodigious top executives who ascended the competitive corporate ladder to extraordinary women at the grassroots level.

Inspiring Women in Travel Asia (IWTA) is the brainchild of TD owner and CEO Gary Marshall and Michaela Connor, Peopleworks Leader at Discova, which is the first step in championing the critical role of women in travel.
