Diversity and Inclusion in Hospitality

Be Inclusive Hospitality launches second industry survey

Be Inclusive Hospitality has launched its 2021 Inside Hospitality Survey to understand how diversity and inclusion in hospitality may have changed over the past 12 months.

The first was launched in November 2020, surveying employees and entrepreneurs from all backgrounds and career levels, in alignment with the social enterprise’s mission to accelerate race equity and equality by exploring topics including bias, career progression, inclusion and education. The results of the survey found half of hospitality professionals from Black, Asian or Ethnic Minority backgrounds had experienced racism at work.

This year’s diversity and inclusion in hospitality survey has set out to understand the status quo within all areas of hospitality including contract catering, pubs, bars, hotels and restaurants by benchmarking 2020 with 2021 results, facilitating learning and informing actions.

The Inside Hospitality Report will be published in March 2022 and will become a free of charge resource for the industry due to sponsorship.

Lorraine Copes, Be Inclusive Hospitality founder, said: “Coming out of a pandemic in 2021 has naturally meant that cash in some instances has acted as a barrier to purchase the report for some organisations. We wanted to remove this challenge and encourage all companies within the industry to share this survey amongst all employees at all levels. I truly believe that in order to move the dial forward on equity, diversity and inclusion we must really understand the problems that we are all working towards addressing”.

Be Inclusive Hospitality is a not-for-profit with a mission to drive education, amplify voices, build a strong community and accelerate racial equality in the hospitality sector.
