SAN DIEGO–San Diego Women in Tourism and Hospitality (W.I.T.H.) revealed their latest move in “leading the way” in San Diego through the launch of the new website, www.sdwithit.com.
W.I.T.H. is a program led by Clara Carter, founder and CEO of the Multi-Cultural Convention Services Network (MCCSN). W.I.T.H. focuses on issues relating to women in the workplace at all stages of their careers and the changing landscape of Hospitality and Tourism in San Diego. The annual W.I.T.H. awards, the flagship event of the W.I.T.H. program, presents and honors influential women in the tourism and hospitality industry.
Each year since the first W.I.T.H. event in 2016, the sold out W.I.T.H. Awards Luncheon has been a highlight of Women’s History Month in San Diego. W.I.T.H. awards have been presented to a total of 18 women. In 2018 the inaugural Carol Wallace Lifetime Achievement Award was granted to Fae Desmond, Executive Director of Comic-Con International.
The website will contain news and information about the W.I.T.H. program, the W.I.T.H. Awards Luncheon and the phenomenal women involved, highlights from past W.I.T.H. events, current happenings, and announcements of upcoming events. Clara Carter, W.I.T.H. program producer, stated “We are excited that the launch of this amazing website and the opening of nominations for recipients of the 2019 W.I.T.H. Awards are happening together.”
Nominations are open in five industry categories: Meeting and Convention Management, Destination Management Company, Digital Marketing, Events and Attractions, and Hoteliers and Suppliers. Nomination applications and award criteria are available on the new website, www.sdwithit.com/nominations.
Industry partners are encouraged to nominate executive women for the 2019 W.I.T.H. Awards. Nominations will close January 18, 2019. Winners will be notified and announced on January 28, 2019.
