Lorraine is an award-winning advocate and champion of change in the hospitality industry and in this episode of the Caterer.com Recruiting in Hospitality Podcast, Lorraine casts a light on the state of industry from the perspective of people of colour.
    Be Inclusive Hospitality released their annual report was released a few months ago and cast a light on the state of industry from the perspective of people of colour. The report states that Black respondents, at 43%, are most likely to report that ethnicity has hindered career hospitality progression. Asian (37%) and mixed (28%) respondents reported the same. In contrast, just 7% of White respondents believe this. In real terms, what are the knock-on effects from this? How does this affect the individual and the face of the industry as a whole?
