Wyndham inks deal with Evolvin’ Women

Ramada Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Ajman, Ramada by Wyndham Beach Hotel Ajman and Wyndham Garden Ajman Corniche signed a partnership agreement with Evolvin’ Women, a social enterprise dedicated to the advancement of women in developing areas through skills development in the hospitality sector.

The three Ajman properties are Evolvin’ Women’s first hotel partners in other emirates apart from Dubai. They will provide professional development opportunities to women, and offer them trainings based on their capabilities. As Evolvin’ Women connects unemployed women from Africa to quality education and job opportunities in the UAE, the goal of the partnership is to help empower the women enrolled in Evolvin’ Women’s programme, while enriching their skills and enhancing their future career prospects in the hospitality sector.

As a starting point to the partnership, Ramada Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Ajman has recently hired Immaculate Bawah, a woman from Ghana who lost her job in the UAE due to the pandemic.

Ravi Santiago, cluster general manager of Wyndham hotels Ajman, commented: “Our hotels have been actively involved in different projects that focus on sustainability and altruism. The collaboration with Evolvin’ Women is an excellent way for us to expand our CSR initiatives by placing emphasis on women empowerment. We believe women will continue to play a big role in the success of any organisation and we aim to highlight their contributions to our hotels whilst enhancing their careers.”

He added: “Through this, we recognise that we will be able to help not just one person or family, but an entire community and encourage younger women, especially from developing countries, to aspire for a rewarding career in hospitality.”
