Not-for-profit organisation Women in Hospitality (WOHO) is thrilled to announce an exciting partnership with Pink Boots Society Australia for the upcoming intake of their renowned Mentor Program, slated to launch in January 2024. This collaboration is rooted in a shared commitment to empower and uplift women and non-binary people in the dynamic and ever-evolving hospitality industry.
Breaking Barriers, Creating Opportunities
WOHO and Pink Boots Society Australia are joining forces to break down barriers and open doors for women and non-binary people to excel and lead in the hospitality sector. This partnership underscores their shared vision of fostering an inclusive and supportive environment where women and non-binary people can thrive, regardless of their career stage or specialisation within the industry.
Zana Pascall, a mentee from the 2022 intake, shares her enthusiastic endorsement of the program: “I would highly recommend getting involved with the WOHO Mentor Program. I was paired with Mary-Anne Stupart from Republic of Fremantle, and she was an absolute powerhouse to be paired with. Having someone who worked in a separate area of hospitality to me gave my experience a fresh set of eyes and new perspective on things that I wanted support or clarity on. The program is such a beautiful way to connect with other women in the industry and feel supported in your journey.”
Applications Now Open
As the next intake of the WOHO & Pink Boots Mentor Program approaches, applications are now open to women and non-binary people across the hospitality industry who are seeking mentorship, guidance, and the opportunity to network with industry leaders. All applications received will be considered for this groundbreaking program that aims to inspire, educate, and propel women and non-binary people to greater heights in their hospitality careers.
WOHO is proudly sponsored by Porkstars, bringing Australian pork to the forefront of Australia’s menus. WOHO works together with their sponsors to inspire, foster and support the career development of women in the hospitality industry.
