Industry Benchmark

In the hospitality industry, as of 2016, men have been 10 times more likely to be promoted to the principal/partner or president levels than women, 4 times more likely to be promoted to the EVP/group president level and more than twice as likely to be promoted to the senior VP, VP, or district level. To align with the market at the upper levels, the industry must address the odds against women getting promoted to lower and mid-level executive positions.

The following report is the benchmark by which the hospitality industry, in spite of its dependence on women, lags other industries.
