Why Empowering Women

is so important to Alpaca Expeditions

#hikelikeagirl #EmpoweringWomen

Women line

We understand the importance of extra safety measures to make sure our female guides and porters are comfortable at all times. Sexual harassment is real in all industries, but with women and men sleeping so close together, we needed to be clear on proper behavior. We decided to hire an outside coach to review with everyone on our team the Do's and Don'ts. He helped to reinforce the rules we have at Alpaca Expeditions, like no drinking on the job (this leads to poor choices), no touching, careful language, be respectful to everyone. And a reminder that we are a team and we need to stick up for each other and ourselves. Speak up if someone makes you uncomfortable...let management know. Take care of your fellow employee as they are your little brother or sister. Make sure that nobody else is bothering them - from other companies or even clients.

We are dedicated to the empowerment of women by giving them a voice and place in the tourism industry. By equipping them with resources and skills, we can see them break barriers and move mountains every day.

For women in Peru to have the same equal opportunities as men in the tourism industry.
