#HallofShame | 55% Women Hosts But Only 30% Women Speakers At Airbnb Open LA

Airbnb Open LA is a “one-of-a-kind moment to reimagine hospitality’s future with community members from around the world.” Taking place November 17-19 all over Los Angeles, Airbnb Open invites Airbnb hosts to be the guests for once as they immerse themselves in the city, create meaningful friendships, and learn about the newest trends in hospitality. The not-so-inviting part of the conference? Only 30% women speakers.

Airbnb claims to “reimagine a world where people can belong anywhere.” They should begin with their own events. Airbnb hosts are 55% women, with women over 60 consistently ranking among the best hosts on the site, yet they remain underrepresented in Airbnb’s own hospitality conference. Join us in our demand that Airbnb show more equity in its speaker lineup.
