As a student working in our female-dominated hospitality industry, it’s hard to ignore the change in gender organization upon entering a management role. While women have made their mark in recent years, men are still holding the majority of positions in upper management. We want to get to the bottom of this change by speaking to the women who are currently experiencing it across different sectors of hospitality. Topics will include work/life balance, the stereotypes and barriers that exist for women, how we have overcome them, and how we see the future for women in management of hospitality.
Panel Talk 7-9pm
