The gender pay gap. Lack of representation in leadership. The Covid-19 Shecession. This week, Joanna Jagger, President and Founder of the Women of Recreation, Tourism & Hospitality (WORTH) Association, joins Beth in the resilience conversation. Joanna will share how she leverages the resilience she’s needed throughout her career as a woman in this industry to advocate for all the women who make up 54% of this industry that will see men 15x more likely to be promoted to an executive leadership role. By connecting and bringing forward the voices of women within this sector, something that had never been done before, WORTH Association has created a community that educates, elevates and empowers members to be in the driver seat of their leadership acceleration. With recreation, tourism & hospitality being the hardest hit by the pandemic, Joanna and the 2000 strong & growing WORTH community across Canada, are focused on getting women back to work and keeping them working. Drawing on their resilience, they are advocating and collaborating as a collective to reshape this industry with a path forward that is in service to all within it. In episode 13 of Resilience & You listen in to learn how you might connect to build resilience within your own community and collaborate for change!
Resilience & You
Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Resilience and You is designed for those who would like to strengthen their resilience, particularly in times of challenge and uncertainty. We interview resilient humans to learn from their stories about how resilience can be strengthened, at work and beyond. Kathryn McEwen, an organizational psychologist operating out of Australia, defines resilience as “an individual’s capacity to manage the everyday stress of work and remain healthy, rebound and learn from unexpected setbacks and prepare for future challenges proactively.” Resilience invites us to slow down, create a pause, take a breath and embrace curiosity. Resilience is currently receiving a lot of media attention. Our efforts to cultivate workplaces of belonging and performance amidst COVID-19 are yielding resilience challenges for leaders and employees alike. Resilience positively enhances our conflict handling skills, our capacity for managing everyday stressors and our capacity for navigating the many relationships we have.
