Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) is thrilled to announce the launch of its new sister brand, Women Leading Travel & Hospitality, a membership-based association that connects executive women across all sectors of the travel and hospitality industry. Following continued year-over-year growth of WIRLC, we recognized the opportunity to establish a professional community in the travel and hospitality industry that promotes, supports and celebrates women. This new brand’s mission is akin to WIRLC’s: to unite, inspire and empower a community of leaders by providing unparalleled resources, support and motivation to achieve personal and professional growth.

Just like WIRLC, Women Leading Travel & Hospitality’s advisory board is comprised of true industry trailblazers who believe in and support its mission. Women Leading Travel & Hospitality is building a community comprised of successful, motivated and passionate women spanning the entire industry ecosystem.

While Women Leading Travel & Hospitality is open to all women leaders in the industry, the core of the community stems from its dedicated advisory board and members. Benefits of membership include discounted event registrations, exclusive member-only content, a job directory, and a private networking forum. Women Leading Travel & Hospitality is also offering a founding membership rate through 2021. Learn more about that here.

If you know an incredible woman working in the travel and hospitality industry who would benefit from an industry-specific women’s leadership organization like WIRLC, don’t hesitate to refer them to Women Leading Travel & Hospitality.

P.S.: Women Leading Travel & Hospitality is also launching its first event, the Women Leading Travel & Hospitality Virtual Exchange, on Thurs., Feb. 25. Speakers include Angela Brav, president, Hertz International; Kristie Goshow, chief marketing officer, Preferred Hotels & Resorts; Linda Rutherford, senior vice president and chief communications officer, Southwest Airlines; among others.
