Content of the Masterclass

Gender continues to be the most talked about subject, feminism was named ‘word of the year’ in 2017 in the Webster Dictionary, and the year 2018 was ‘the year of the woman’ according to CNN. Yet despite many recent initiatives, lack of gender diversity in the workplace continues, and women are still underrepresented in senior and executive level roles.
During this masterclass, Dr Gebbels will share the latest research on the career advancement of women in the hospitality, travel and leisure industry, including factors that hinder their career progression and those which enable them to advance their careers.
This masterclass will be highly interactive. Dr Gebbels will deliver the content of the session outlined above interchangeably with audience participation and discussion using interactive software, Slido or Mentimeter (TBC).
The purpose of the series of discussions is to allow attendees to learn from one another, to share best industry practice and to encourage change on the subject of gender diversity and career progression of women.

Questions during the masterclass:

1. Are there any flexible working arrangements available in your workplace? If so, are all staff actively encouraged to apply for them.
2. What positive characteristics do you think a mix balance of gender personnel can bring to your company?
3. What strategies do you think are still to be set up to encourage women’s career progression?

Please note this masterclass will be recorded.
Please note attendees will be asked to use their mobile devices to engage in a series of discussions.

Who is this for?

This masterclass is ideal for HR leaders, D&I leaders, and other HT&L leaders passionate about supporting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and promoting career progression of women.
