On October 16th, 2018 women from accommodation, food service, recreation and tourism connected for an evening of networking with an inspiring panel discussion. Empower Her brought together a community of hospitality leaders to expand their network and create meaningful relationships.

A panel of Victoria’s top female executives shared inspiring ideas and sparked dialogue about issues that impact women in the workplace. Their perspectives and insights helped inform, inspire and empower women as we collectively identified ways to accelerate women to senior roles in the hospitality and tourism industry.
