Hilton Signs as Lead Sponsor for Castell Project’s Ladder Up Campaign
"Officials of Castell Project, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the careers of women professionals in the hospitality industry, this week launched its “Ladder Up” capital campaign. With a goal to raise $1 million, the organization also announced that Hilton has signed on as the lead sponsor with a $100,000 donation to launch the campaign.
'While myriad international studies show that companies with gender-diverse leadership drive higher profits, female representation at the higher levels of the hospitality industry is lacking,” said Peggy Berg, president, Castell Project, Inc. “The Castell Project is taking active steps towards seeing women hold a minimum of one in three leadership positions, including ownership, at all levels of the hospitality industry. These funds will be used to help women climb the corporate ladder as we reach for this goal.'"
Legacy Ventures' VP of Operations - Hotels, Eve Moore, is proud to be a Founding Member of the Castell Project and to serve on its Board.
