Today is International Women's Day, which seemed like the most appropriate time to announce our upcoming Great Women in Travel Awards, which will honor the groundbreaking, trailblazing, glass-ceiling-shattering, inspiring women who are defining — and redefining — travel. Explorers. Humanitarians. Architects. Journalists. Photographers. Designers. Hoteliers. Concierges. Chefs. You get the idea: We're casting a wide net, looking for greatness in all aspects of travel.
We'll celebrate industry insiders and public influencers. Women you already know, and those you'll be glad to discover. The announcements will roll out in the next few months as an installment in the Fathom Travel Awards, our year-long celebration of the best people, places, and products in the world.

Of course, celebrating women warrants more than just a day. So in a lead-up to the the Great Women in Travel Awards, we'll be profiling women travelers who inspire us throughout the year — and encourage you to do the same with #FathomWomen.
