In this interactive workshop, Joanna Jagger from WORTH Association will address the unique barriers women face in hospitality management, and how to combat the industry’s “invisible obstacle course”. We will examine the steps leaders can take to improve equity in the workplace, addressing the pervasive gender biases that plague the workforce.  Using data and research, Jagger will demonstrate how the leadership landscape is changing, and how we all play a role in unlocking the potential of women in our organizations. She will share the key to leadership development for women, which begins with learning to get out of your own way.
