WiHTL & Diversity in Retail celebrate milestone impact of 4 million employees


WiHTL & Diversity in Retail, the only Collaboration Community devoted to increasing equity, diversity and inclusion in the Hospitality, Travel, Leisure and Retail sectors, are proud to announce a significant milestone in their ongoing efforts to transform the industry. Following the addition of new Members such as Costa, Greggs, MSC Cruises and Popeyes, their collective impact now stands at over 4 million employees, marking a major step forward in their mission to positively impact 5 million employees by 2030.

Founded by Tea Colaianni, WiHTL & Diversity in Retail have been at the forefront of addressing key challenges in workplace equality and inclusion in the Hospitality, Travel, Leisure and Retail sectors. This milestone reflects the success of numerous initiatives designed to enhance opportunities for underrepresented employees across these vital sectors.

“We have hit a historic milestone this month: 4 million employees positively impacted by the work we do globally. This makes me incredibly proud of our work and immensely grateful for the support from so many people: my team, the Advisory Boards, the leaders across our industry, the attendees at our webinars, committees and programmes, our partners and sponsors. ‘People need People’ as the legendary poet Benjamin Zefaniah wrote and it is a lot of people who collaboratively are making a difference and creating a truly inclusive Hospitality, Travel, Leisure and Retail industry.” Tea said.

The milestone is a result of several strategic initiatives, such as the cross-industry collaboration they foster, their award-winning Leadership Development Programmes and the boundless EDI resources created for the Community.
