International Women’s Day is on the 8th March 2015 and this year’s theme is “Make It Happen”. Throughout the world there have been events to celebrate the achievement of women and encourages effective action for advancing and recognising women.
Earlier this week I attended an event run by Women 1st who support women who aspire to senior leadership roles to fulfill their career ambitions in the hospitality, passenger transport, travel, tourism and retail sectors.
Held at the Ham Yard Hotel there was a fabulous panel of female speakers from Firmdale Hotels:
The discussions that flowed were hosted by Harriet Minter, editor for Guardian, Women in Leadership.
It was a very insightful and inspirational evening hearing about the Firmdale Hotels family and how these successful women have juggled managing their careers in hospitality with family life.
I would love to hear what you have done to “Make it Happen”
