Foodies may be pleased to know that it’s not all waving a feminist banner for the sake of publicity. A private focus group will also take place for women working in Accor hotels across southern Vietnam, led by Accor’s Chief Talent and Culture Officer for Asia Pacific – Christine Rumble.

Accor’s new initiative, WILD F&B (Women in Leadership Disrupting Food and Beverage), an initiative which sets out to tackle the (very apparent) imbalance of gender diversity in the food and beverage industry by offering support to female talent such as career guidance and thought leadership forums.
