Portrayals of gender - Better Hospitality Conference 2024

Our co-founder Mex Ibrahim is speaking at The Better Hospitality Conference on 19th March (the second day of the two day conference) at 11:30am-12:30pm on the following panel “Do we need to do more to address media portrayals of gender roles in hospitality?”

The way gender is portrayed within hospitality by the media can have a major impact on how future candidates perceive career paths in hospitality and how teams behave in reality. This directly affects the candidate pool hospitality operators can draw from and the wellbeing of their existing teams. Yet it can seem like, as operators, we don’t have much control over this media perception. Is this true? How could we influence it? And how important is it that we do?

Mex will be joined on the panel by Kate Howell communications advisor and Non Executive Director, specialising in food, communities and markets, Emily Kanders Goldfischer, Founder & Editor in Chief of hertelier and Tim Andrews of the Talking Hospitality Podcast.
