Focus groups on female leadership

Are you interested in sharing your thoughts on equality in the workplace? Do you work in tourism, travel, hospitality or events?

The University of Greenwich is carrying out research to understand how women regard opportunities to develop onto executive-level posts in the industry.

It does not matter what type of organisation you work for. The researchers are interested in hearing your thoughts. They also want to hear from men – how men perceive opportunities available to women in the workplace is also relevant.

Your involvement in a focus group would give the research team an opportunity to understand your thoughts on the skills required for leadership roles, and how support could be made available that would be recognised in the industry. The aim of the research is to develop a Female Leadership Developmemnt Programme for the Tourism Industry.

A focus group will be held on the following date at the following locations:

  • Thursday 24th May 12.00 – 2.30 Ulster University
  • Tuesday 29th May  12.00 – 2.30 University of Strathclyde
  • Monday 11th June 12.00 – 2.30 University of Greenwich
  • Wednesday 13th June 12.00 – 2.30 University College Birmingham

Food and drink will be provided and travel will be re-imbursed to the value of £10.00.  If you are interested in participating in the research, please contact Dr Menna Jones by e-mail on: m.t.jones@gre.ac.uk
