Since she went to Europe as a young girl, Christine Duffy always knew she wanted to work in the travel industry. Her first career goal was to be a Pan Am flight attendant but ultimately was denied because she was 2 inches shorter than the required 5” 4’ height. Today she is the President of Carnival Cruise Lines. They are in the business of hospitality, hosting 4.5 million passengers annually. Duffy values taking care of her employees as much as taking care of their guests, providing on-site child care, health clinic, and more, at the headquarters. As a leader, she values empathy, diversity, and investing in the things that matter. Listen to this week’s episode of Fortune Unfiltered to learn more about her journey to success.
