ABOUT WITR

Women in Travel Retail (WiTR) was established in 2006 by a group of female executives from the travel retail industry keen to provide a forum for the industry’s women. As well as offering a platform for networking, WiTR has emerged as one of the industry’s strongest advocates of charitable giving, supporting a variety of projects from Haiti to Africa and China, with a strong focus on helping children and young adults.

In 2017, WiTR became a registered entity and have started a membership service as a strategy to raise funds and create a better networking platform for female executives
