Casino operator Hard Rock International has been recognized by Forbes Magazine in its 2019 list of America’s Best Employers for Women within the travel and leisure category for the second consecutive year. 

The list of America’s Best Employers for Women has been chosen in partnership with Statista, a provider of market and consumer data, based on an independent survey from a vast sample of 60,000 US employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their US operations.

“I’m incredibly honored to be a part of an organization that understands the importance of diversity,” said Tracy Bradford, Executive Vice President of Administration, and Founder of Seminole and Hard Rock Women in Leadership. “Hard Rock displays this understanding through action by maintaining programs designed to mentor, develop and empower future leaders in all aspects of our business.”

Since implementing the Women in Leadership (WIL) program in 2017, the firm has seen an increase in female representation within leadership roles. In that time, female employees represented at the director and vice president level have risen to 32% and 27% respectively, both of which are above the industry standard of 22%.
