Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd brands have extended their RCL Cares online agent hub to provide resources from everywoman.

Webinars, features and articles, videos and podcasts, advice and guidance from experts as well as access to homeworking hubs and virtual coffee breaks is offered by everywoman, which helps enhance the roles of women in business.

The first wave of free everywoman content focuses on leadership, set against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, with commentary and articles from former Barclaycard managing director Sandra Moise and Heathrow director Helen Elsby. It also looks at how business might change in a post Covid-19 world.

RCL Cares was launched by the cruise company’s brands – Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara and Silversea Cruises – last month.

Ben Bouldin, vice president EMEA, at RCL, said: “Trade partner feedback on RCL Cares has been fantastic. I’m proud to be able to continue to build on this resource and support our invaluable trade agents further through partnerships such as this, with everywoman. It’s astonishing what can be accomplished when we come together in support of one another and the empowering resources available through everywoman reflect just that: we are stronger when we work together.”

Jo Rzymowska, vice president and managing director EMEA, Celebrity Cruises, added: “Everywoman has been a key part of RCL’s diversity and inclusion programme for a number of years, supporting our employees in the UK & Ireland. Strengthening our relationship through RCL Cares will now serve to help our extended RCL family, our valued travel partners, as we all find our way through these extraordinary times.”

Karen Gill, co-founder of everywoman, said: “The everywoman community of over 30,000 members has benefited from an extensive range of resources for many years. Now, through the RCL Cares initiative, we are thrilled to be able to share this more widely to support the travel industry at this critical time. The content features commentary and insight from some of this country’s best thinkers and experienced leaders – delivered by women, relevant for all.”
