Mumbai, March 27, 2016: As part of the initiatives taken for the benefit and awareness of hoteliers and restaurateurs, the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI) has organized a special seminar that will address the Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal on sexual harassment of women at workplace. The seminar will be organized at The Waterstones hotel, Mumbai, on March 29th. Mr. Vishal Kedia, an eminent authority on the subject will address the audience.

“The law on the subject fits with the pledge of commitment towards ‘code of conduct for safe and honorable tourism’ signed by every hotelier for obtaining requisite licenses. We are keen to create awareness about the law amongst our member hotels. Compliance with the law not only helps female tourists and employees feel safer in India, but also fits with the concept of ‘atithi devo bhava’,” says Mr. Bharat Malkani, President, HRAWI.

“Hospitality as an industry employs a sizeable number of women, and it is a figure that is growing. As the apex body of a progressive industry, we feel it is imperative upon us to facilitate a safe and secure work atmosphere for all our employees through constant training and information sessions,” concludes Mr. Malkani.
