OCEAN CITY, MD—Jami Day, director of corporate responsibility for Real Hospitality Group (RHG), spoke on a panel hosted as part of the 2013 United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in support of the company’s ongoing initiatives as an active partner for ECPAT-USA. ECPAT- USA is a non-profit organization that advocates for policies to protect sexually exploited children.
Moderated by Carol Smolenski, executive director of ECPAT-USA, the panel was overseen by Libran N. Cabactulan, ambassador and permanent representative of the Republic of the Philippines to the United Nations. The panel was a collaboration with the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility and the NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons.
RHG became the first hotel management company in the U.S. to sign the Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct with ECPAT-USA, and Day has completed the training initiatives throughout the portfolio of hotels as part of the commitment to ECPAT’s initiatives.
The most recent NYU Conference, earlier this month proved, once and for all, that the lodging industry has finally turned the corner and happy days are, indeed, here again. While the economists and pundits all provided plenty of anecdotal evidence to bear that out in terms of supply and demand ratios, RevPAR projections, asset values and all the other metrics, that’s not what has me convinced.
