Hilton’s Africa & Indian Ocean (AIO) region recently closed off its three-day Women in Leadership Conference. This event was designed to celebrate and highlight the achievements of women throughout Hilton and female leadership across the group.
The hybrid event was hosted at Hilton Sandton in Johannesburg and streamed online with participants and some speakers joining from three other African hubs, including Tangier (Morocco), Abuja (Nigeria), and the Seychelles.
The conference featured a diverse panel of speakers, with keynote addresses by Refilwe Ledwaba, South Africa’s first black female pilot and founder of Girls Fly Programme in Africa, and Dr. Mosima Mabunda, who is the head of Vitality Wellness Discovery.
Hellen Lebone, regional HR director for Africa and Indian Ocean, Hilton, said: “The Women in Leadership Conference, hosted under the theme of ‘Bloom Where You are Planted’, aimed to address issues faced by women in the hospitality industry in this region and inspire a new generation of female leaders. We used this platform to encourage our female leaders to continue pursuing opportunities, driving impact, and growing their careers in their chosen portfolios.”
