WYNDHAM’S WOR SEES 15 HOTEL OPENINGS, 50 SIGNINGS IN TWO YEARS

WYNDHAM HOTELS & RESORTS’ Women Own the Room surpassed 15 hotel openings and 50 signings in just over 24 months. The program has expanded its network to
more than 550 women, leveraging Wyndham’s scale to break down barriers to hotel ownership, Wyndham said in a statement.

“For decades, the hotel industry has been complacent in allowing women to remain on the sidelines of hotel ownership and in turn, has missed out on the opportunity
to strengthen itself through greater diversity,” said Galen Barrett, Wyndham’s vice president for strategic franchise initiatives. “Women Own the Room and the
subsequent programs it has inspired throughout the industry are finally changing the narrative and Wyndham is proud to lead the way.”

According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Castell Project, although women comprise nearly 60 percent of the hospitality workforce, they
hold only one leadership position for every 10 men.
