Welcome to the Shine Awards 2017

The Shine Awards celebrate the unique skills and contribution that women, and those who support their career progression, bring to the hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism industry.

The Shine Awards are:

  • Professional:  because retaining women and enabling them to progress to senior management is a very important part of the solution to ensuring the industry has the personnel and skills it needs in years to come.
  • Inclusive:   because we recognise that men have a significant role to play in nurturing female talent.
  • Inspiring:   because we want women and men to come away reinvigorated for the challenge of finding new ways to retain and promote women into the senior ranks of the industry.
  • Creating a sense of community: because it’s important to come together, as an industry, and enjoy the opportunity to recognise hard work and talent and to share ideas and experiences.
  • Innovative: because looking forward, not back, overcoming traditional stereotypes and creating new ways of working are vital to helping our industries benefit from a better balance of male and female leaders
