Women hold fewer than 40 percent of all hotel managerial positions and less than 20% of general management roles. The Philadelphia Mona Lisa’s, a membership organization supporting black women in the hospitality industry, is working to change this statistic. The next PHL Diversity Podcast guests are seasoned executive and founder of Mona Lisa’s, Darnell Belford; an aspiring industry administrator and member of ML’s, Kelly Acy; and future hospitality graduate, Shyanne Gaston. They discuss the importance of establishing Mona Lisa’s in 2016 and its impact on the industry, how they are preparing the next generation of industry leaders, and much more.
