Ei Group has signed up to the Diversity in Hospitality, Travel and Leisure (HTL) Charter, which forms part of the campaign from Women in Hospitality, Travel and Leisure 2020 (WiH2020).

The Charter sets out 10 action points that companies are asked to commit to, and also encourages them to set their own objectives and priorities within the field of diversity and inclusion.

Involvement in the Charter also includes sharing best practice, collaborating on joint initiatives and participating in industry-wide surveys and projects coordinated by WiH2020.

Simon Townsend, Ei Group Chief Executive, said: “I’m delighted to confirm Ei Group’s commitment to the Diversity in HTL Charter, and our determination to make a meaningful contribution to improving diversity and inclusion not just within our business, but also across the wider hospitality industry.”

The inaugural meeting of the new WiH2020 Advisory Board, which Simon Townsend recently joined, took place earlier this week. Sector leaders shared their personal motivation for supporting the WiH2020 campaign and committed to working collaboratively to progress the diversity and inclusion agenda through a series of tangible actions.
