An equal world is an enabled world and at Hotelier Maldives we believe in equal rights for all. Especially women who play an important role in modern society and nowhere is it more perceptible than in the workplace. Women are a formidable force in the hospitality industry and we salute their accomplishments and stand behind them as they move forward to conquer new pinnacles. Hotelier Maldives caught up with these wonderful women who shared some wise quotes and messages for this day.
