Focusing on the international theme of ‘Break the Bias’, Fiji’s leading luxury brand is an equal opportunities employer that supports and strongly encourages a workspace free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination promoting an environment that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive for awareness and positive change.

“We are excited to continue to celebrate our female colleagues and the outstanding contribution that they make within our Fiji properties. We celebrate women at every level of our business and salute their unwavering support and contribution to the overall performance of our Hotels and Resorts. As we pivot out of a global pandemic, we are excited to advise that some of key support roles within our three properties in Fiji are led by our women colleagues. Their guidance and support have been unwavering and highly appreciated as we continue to focus on the commercial longevity of our properties in Fiji” commented Lachlan Walker, Area General Manager – South Pacific.

At a property level, the Grand Pacific Hotel, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa and Holiday Inn Suva had celebratory programs that continue to recognize the contribution of women in the workplace. All three properties hosted events for colleagues with special keynote speakers talking to the recognition of women in homes, the workplace and society.
Talking about the event, Doreen Huon, Cluster Director of Sales & Marketing, Fiji said: “It was our utmost privilege to host the illustrious speakers and have colleagues listen to their inspiring achievements and tremendous journeys. They undoubtedly serve as role models to all of us but especially the aspiring Fijian women who want to prosper in their areas of expertise. We also encourage more Fijian women to explore their professional journey within IHG which is at the core of the growing and investing in talent.”
InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa and Holiday Inn Suva had similar activations at the respective hotels and celebrated women colleagues with special luncheons, especially crafted afternoon tea and gift packs.
