Since 1911, International Women’s Day (IWD), has been celebrated on March 8th every year and is a day of advocacy for women’s rights and equality around the world. It’s about raising awareness around important milestones and celebrating the women who make our world great.

Women in Hospitality

The hospitality industry has changed significantly over the past 60 years, women are becoming leaders with active opportunities and taking on leading roles within the hospitality market. We have earned our place with all segments of hospitality: Food and beverages, Travel and Tourism, lodging, and recreation. In the overall economy, 46.1% of employees are now women, and within the hospitality sector this figure has grown to 53.7%.

Alongside the remarkable and pioneering females in food service and hospitality, FOH®’s culture is grounded with a vision to support the education and recognition of women in our industry. We aim to be a resource and platform that gives women the confidence to excel in leadership roles and continue to expand on mentorship. At FOH®, we can proudly announce that out of our 35 team of leaders (managers and above) 21 are female. As we continue to celebrate our success, we know there are still massive strides to take.

In a field that is still mainly dominated by men, women can continue to lay the groundwork to lift each other up and continue to impact the hospitality industry. We support and encourage our community to connect with like-minded leaders with organizations that encourage the exchanging of networks and resources through innovative workshops, movements, and events. Some of which are colleagues and partners are currently working on:
