WiHTL Annual Report - 2020 Edition
Our yearly research into the status of diversity and inclusion across hospitality, travel and leisure was published on the 5th of February 2020. We are delighted that The MBS Group (for the second consecutive year) and PwC (for the 3rd consecutive year) have supported WiHTL with what has now become the leading voice on diversity and inclusion collaboration across HTL.
The 2020 Report focuses on two key areas of the diversity and inclusion journey: Gender (for the 3rd year) and Race and Ethnicity (for the 2nd year). It explores progress made by companies across the sector both in terms of increasing the percentage of women and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic employees at senior leadership level as well as making meaningful changes towards creating a diverse and inclusive organisational culture.

Key Findings from the WiHTL Annual Report 2020
In positive news, the report found that key progress has been made in female and BAME representation at each of the most senior levels – Board, Executive Committee and Direct Reports.
There is however also room for considerable improvement. 84% of businesses are still not on track to reach 33% female representation across all 3 leadership levels by end of 2020.
In the area of race and ethnicity, a step change is needed in the industry. Strikingly, the report found 82.5% of companies have no BAME leaders at board level and just 12.5% of companies are in line with or greater than the UK working age population.
