Please join us to discuss the work of Sherma Roberts, a Lecturer in tourism at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.

Dr. Roberts has been instrumental in developing the participation framework for the Tourism White Paper (2012-2021) in Barbados. Recently, she served as a panelist for the Caribbean Examinations Council developing the recently launched CAPE tourism syllabus, and is now the Chief Examiner for the subject.  She has three co-edited books—and recently published Contemporary Caribbean Tourism: Concept and Cases—which will be used by tourism students throughout the Caribbean archipelago.  Sherma has written and presented papers in areas pertaining to community participation, corporate social responsibility, sustainable tourism, diaspora tourism, e-marketing and tourism entrepreneurship.
