UKHospitality partners with Plan B to launch diversity survey

Plan B, the mentoring platform designed to accelerate women’s representation on boards, has announced the launch of a survey to better understand the sentiment of women working within the hospitality sector.

The survey, run in partnership with UKHospitality, will extend to both operators and suppliers and is designed to gather insights into the challenges faced by women working in the sector and raise awareness of the barriers to career development and retention.

It aims to identify key data and themes that can be translated into strategies to improve gender diversity at all levels within hospitality businesses and increase the opportunity for the progression of women leaders.

Kate Nicholls OBE, CEO of UKHospitality commented, “We are delighted to partner with Plan B on this critically important survey of diversity and inclusion in our sector; only when we fully understand the size of the challenge, can we begin to address it.”

The survey can be accessed HERE and the results will be announced at the ‘Plan B: Accelerating Change Conference’ on 5 October at 30 Euston Square, London, supported by events partner Peach 20/20.

The conference, which is DICE accredited, is designed for C-level business leaders, founders and HR professionals seeking to learn how to make positive change in their organisations.

The ticket price includes a 'plus one' to be shared with an up-and-coming talent from an under-represented group, who may not typically be invited to attend such an event.
