“Hospitality is a front-runner when it comes to gender diversity, with more women in senior positions than ever before, a low gender pay gap and a real positive approach to tackling challenges as they arise. We are the ultimate meritocracy and, with a large and still growing workforce, well placed to welcome back and support women returners and demonstrate to them the new opportunities available to them. This programme is a fantastic way to help women get back into a dynamic, rewarding and stimulating career in hospitality and rekindle the valuable experience and skills they already have.

“The Comeback to HTL initiative is a strong demonstration of the vitality, innovation and diversity of hospitality and will help to develop the hospitality workforce of the future.”

Kate Nicholls, CEO, UKHospitality

"The Institute of Hospitality is delighted to support the ‘Comeback to HTL’ programme.

These workshops send out an important message that our sector fully welcomes and supports women returning to work after motherhood, caring duties or a career break for other reasons. These workshops are a brilliant initiative to attract and support women returners to our sector and to show them just how much we value their talent and experience."

We know that experienced talent is so valuable within our sector, and there are some simple steps we can take to make sure we assist people looking to return and build their career within hospitality, travel and leisure. Encouraging flexibility, driving a more inclusive and diverse culture across the sector and actively supporting returners following their career break are just some of the areas the programme champions, this directly aligns with how we work at M&B so it was an easy choice to support 'Comeback to HTL'"
