Diversity in the labor market is one of the century's key policy issues. This panel looks at how gender influences the working experiences of men and women differently, as seen through the lens of the tourism industry. As female empowerment drives economic development, diversity in the labor market should enhance the economic situation in developing and emerging countries. Panelists will look at the example of tourism to see which opportunities exist and where there is more work to be done. They consider the social development that tourism can bring about while providing examples of hands-on approaches.
