ABSTRACT
Research on women in leadership within the tourism sector has spanned several decades. However, much of this inquiry has narrowly focused on the experiences of white, middle-class women, inadvertently sidelining the leadership narratives of women from diverse backgrounds. This study adopts an intersectional lens to explore the intricate dynamics of women's leadership roles in tourism. Intersectionality theory, which acknowledges the complex interplay of social identities such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class, serves as a pivotal framework for understanding these multifaceted experiences. Through an examination of the relational dynamics within leadership constructs, this conceptual study delves into how intersecting identities shape individual experiences. The study emphasizes the need for a more expansive conceptualization of gender in leadership analysis within the tourism sector. By integrating intersectionality theory, researchers can gain deeper insights into the diverse experiences of women in leadership positions. Moreover, applying an intersectional perspective to women in leadership tourism research illuminates the unique challenges faced by women from marginalized backgrounds, thus fostering a more inclusive understanding of leadership in the tourism industry.
