Intertek Cristal celebrates women in the hospitality industry on International Women’s Day

March 08, 2022

March 8, 2022 (London, UK) Intertek Cristal, a market leading global health, safety, quality, and security risk management business focused on the travel, tourism, and hospitality sectors, is celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8, 2022, with a range of initiatives aimed at acknowledging the contribution of women in the industry and creating awareness on women’s empowerment.

Global studies show that women made up 55% of the global workforce in hospitality industry. The industry suffered significantly during the pandemic and as it gradually returns to normalcy, there is an increasing need to create an inclusive work culture where women's careers flourish, and their achievements are celebrated.

As part of the awareness campaign, Intertek Cristal is engaging all its customers to join the celebration and thank their women colleagues. The awareness campaign also includes a series of social media communications on highlighting the contribution of inspirational women in the sector of travel, tourism, and hospitality. Moreover, Intertek Cristal is also celebrating the achievements of its own women leaders, under the theme of “Intertek Inspirational Women”.

Samir Ahmed, Managing Director of Intertek Cristal and Intertek Checkpoint said, “At Intertek Cristal, we acknowledge the role that women play at every level of the customer experience in the hospitality industry, and we witness this first-hand during our audits and consulting interactions with our customers worldwide. Our mission is to encourage all the stakeholders of travel, tourism and hospitality sector to make this industry more accessible, inclusive, and safe for everyone and we really value the contribution that women make to ensuring that this mission becomes a reality.”
