According to a recent survey by PCMA Foundation and Business Events Sydney, men hold 80% of the industry’s C-level positions, despite the industry as a whole being made up of mostly women. However, women are now making great strides into executive and C-suite positions in the hospitality industry, a trend that many would like to see continue in 2024.
