Gender equality in Travel Excellence and Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs)

In Travel Excellence, we believe that tourism has the power of transforming people’s lives in many ways and especially the life of women. This is why the company decided some years ago to voluntarily implement a series of documented policies and procedures to promote equal opportunities and to ensure gender equity. Thanks to these actions, on August 2017, Travel Excellence became the first company to be granted a recognition called Gender Equality Mark, by the Costa Rican National Women Institute (INAMU).View details

As part of this commitment, this year Travel Excellence has decided to sign the statement of support for the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). These principles, led by the UN Women and UN Global Compact, offer guidance on how to encourage gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace, and community.

Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) are:

  • Establish high-level corporate leadership for gender equality.
  • Treat all women and men fairly at work — respect and support human rights and non-discrimination.
  • Ensure health, safety and well-being of all workers, regardless of gender.
  • Promote women’s education, training and professional development.
  • Implement enterprise development, supply chain and marketing practices that empower women.
  • Promote equality through community initiatives and advocacy.
  • Measure and publicly report on progress to achieve gender equality.

We are active members of the most important tourist associations, both national and international.
