WOMEN IN BUSINESS


1 ASPIRE WOMEN IN BUSINESS LUNCH


THE INDUSTRY NEEDS TO DO MORE TO SUPPORT THE PROMOTION AND PROGRESSION OF WOMEN IN THE TRAVEL SECTOR. THAT WAS THE CLARION CALL MADE AT THE FIRST ASPIRE WOMEN IN BUSINESS LUNCH, HELD AT THE SHANGRI-LA HOTEL AT THE SHARD. HOLLIE-RAE BRADER REPORTS


GOOGLE CHIEF PUTS FOCUS ON GENDER DIVERSITY AND PAY DIVIDE


The travel industry has been urged to better support the progression of women in the sector. The call for action was made at


Aspire’s first Women in Business lunch by Nishma Robb, head of ads marketing for Google and chair of Women@Google.


Robb encouraged travel businesses to share data highlighting gender diversity, and also the statistics for progression, retention and those returning from career breaks, so that a benchmark is created to help future progression. Robb said: “We need the light to be shone on developing women in business more and more. “We need to take action and my rallying call consists of several factors – the first is data. “We need to establish exactly where


the travel industry is when it comes to gender diversity and pay divides. “We also need zero tolerance when it comes to gender diversity.” She said seeing female board members and executives was inspirational for other women. Robb was supported by Lisa Lutoff-


Perlo, who was promoted to president and chief executive of Celebrity Cruises


Nishma Robb: ‘We need the light to be shone on developing women in business more’


It gave me a voice, an opportunity and a north star for other women


in 2014, becoming the first woman to have that role in parent company RCCL’s 47-year history. Lutoff-Perlo said: “It gave me a voice, an opportunity and I became


a north star for other women. It took 47 years for our company to appoint a woman in this position and yet we’re in the travel business, where the decision to buy travel resides with a woman in a household. Why would women not be in senior positions? “Women overwhelmingly support


women and travel is full of them, so we need to work together more. “I looked at the faces of all the


women [at RCCL] when I got this job and they couldn’t have been happier for me. The same goes for the thousands of women working on our ships. It inspires women.”
