The Mission of Castell College
Mission: To see women in more than one of every three positions at all levels of hospitality industry leadership and ownership
Castell Project, a 501©3 nonprofit, is named for castell builders. These teams of thousands build human pyramids that lift people many levels high.
Castell Project reduces the friction that slows women’s rise as leaders.
- The research initiative moves the conversation about women from opinion and emotion to facts and goals.
- Leadership programs develop women in five areas where gender-specific training enables women to progress faster and lead more effectively.
- Castell College recognizes that women in hospitality programs often set their sights too low and introduces successful women who are executives and have rich personal lives to show students opportunity.
- Podium initiatives including the Castell Award and WSH List showcase women so they can gain the recognition they need to move up, and so both men and women see women in leading roles.
