This year Anne Scott founded FLI – The Female Leadership Initiative across Marriott in Middle East and Africa.

The initiative aims to look at easing various issues such as maternity policies, partnerships with companies to support working moms, hosting focus groups, educating male leaders on how to support female growth amongst many tasks.

Scott says: "We achieved a positive GOP at W Dubai – The Palm in the first month of operation, which is incredibly difficult to achieve in the hospitality industry in Dubai. We also met owner’s expectations by opening the hotel on the third day of operation with 92% occupancy. The aim is to grow awareness and recognition for FLI in MEA and globally by 2022."
