Women in Lodging CONNECT

WIL 2019 Logo  

The mission of WIL CONNECT is to be a catalyst; to enable the personal and professional development of women with strategies and actions focused on removing barriers and providing solutions, to foster the development of women to obtain leadership competencies that contribute to the achievement of overall career growth, and to engage women in the political process as it relates to the industry.

OHLA WIL CONNECT uses a three-prong strategy to empower women of the hospitality industry:

Educate: Industry leaders will share the facts and help educate members how to overcome women's underrepresentation in management positions in the hospitality industry and leadership positions in public life.

Inspire: Professional speakers presenting to OHIO WIL CONNECT members will share what they have accomplished and the difference it makes to have women setting the agenda and making decisions in the business community and with public policy.

Connect: Women interested in taking the next step towards a leadership position will be connected to other women and men who are currently in those positions to help them succeed in their own Hotel or Unique Lodging property of Ohio.

Membership is FREE! Fill out an Ohio WIL CONNECT Application today!
