WiH Global ('WiH') stands for women in hospitality and is a global not-for-profit and best-in-class community who believe that by collaborating, we can have greater impact and raise the game to create a hospitality industry which is more diverse and inclusive. WiH is announcing the first intake of 500 global members (450 women & 50 men) across Americas, EMEA and APAC and cross-segment with members who Build, Fund, Operate or Advise ('BFOA') in hospitality. The curated community will target members from as many companies in the industry as feasible to ensure discussions represent varied perspectives and the global community drives for positive change with purpose and impact. Key pillars are mentoring, knowledge share and outreach with webinars, topical discussions and coaching sessions organised on a global online platform where members can engage cross-region and cross-segment. WiH collaborates with leading global hospitality conferences to promote more diverse and inclusive panels and will also launch an annual global representation report to provide insight into women and ethnic minority representation in the industry.
To all WiH members, please reach out to inspiring colleagues in firms not yet represented in WiH as we target 400 companies across the industry in our community of 500 members.
To all members and future members, there will be a monthly Zoom session to answer any and all queries on WiH so feel free to join. Will be shown on Linkedin and website to register. Next session: Friday 12th March TTBC.
