INTERNATIONAL. Women in Travel Thrive is organising a 3km Virtual Run in support of efforts to empower women in the travel and hospitality industries.

The Thrive initiative was founded by a group of women in the travel sector to help reduce the impact that COVID-19 has on women’s career progression.

Its goal is to make connections and open doors for women across the industries through networking events.

A Day of Impact, which took place in January, attracted the support of over 500 women. Registration for the 3km Virtual Run, which has a ‘Thrive for Her’ tagline, is open until 22 April. There is a US$5 registration fee and donations from the event will support Thrive Empowerment Bundles which assist women’s re-entry or growth in the travel and hospitality industries.

The 3km event is highlighted by Aer Rianta International (ARI) Retail Analytics Manager Mary Wyse on LinkedIn.
