The WiHTL & DiR Inclusion Summit was a multi-faceted celebration of diversity and inclusion in the Hospitality, Travel, Leisure and Retail sectors. It took place on the 10th October 2023 in London at the iconic London Hilton on Park Lane. The in-person event brought together members of our WiHTL & Diversity in Retail Collaboration Community.
