Women continue to play a critical role in the make-up of senior positions within the tourism industry.
This was highlighted by the Fiji Marriott Director of Human Resources, Farrah Shalzeen, who says 40% of their executives are female.
During the resort’s International Women’s Day celebration today, Shalzeen said they continue to encourage women to take on managerial positions.
“When I joined I was the only female in the executive committee with 10 other males, this year we have 4 other executive committee members compared to how we were 2 years ago which makes up 41% of representation.”
She says women play a vital role in decision making and this is something the Marriott properties in Fiji pride themselves in.
A leadership programme is also being planned by the resort which will ensure more women are empowered.
Over 41% of women make up the staffing of all Marriott properties in Fiji.
