citizenM says: meet the women shaping Zurich — Photo by citizenM Hotels

Away from the male dominated worlds of big business and banking, where women make up a mere 16% of company boards, local photographer Lauretta Suter captured 36 women carving their own paths through the city.

That's 36 strong, smart, creative, dedicated, successful, progressive, inspiring and colourful women. Each with a deep love for their home, forthcoming with wisdom and prepared to fight against anything holding them back.

These women are bucking trends, living their lives to the fullest and building like-minded communities, determined to help each other 'make it'.

Stop by our new hotel in heart of Zurich Old Town and help us celebrate the women of Zurich. We're sure the other 48% will enjoy it too.

About citizenM

citizenM was launched in 2008 with a purpose – to disrupt the traditional, stale hotel industry. Rattan Chadha – the founder of the global fashion brand Mexx – was inspired by his employees to create a hotel for today’s frequent travellers, giving them everything they need and nothing they don’t. This means central locations in the world’s most exciting cities, but at an affordable price. Not just a place to sleep, but somewhere to work, relax and play – just like home. Somewhere with superfast free Wi-Fi, tech that makes life easy, and world-class art that isn’t ‘hotel art’. A room with an ultra-comfortable XL bed to crash in, and a powerful rain shower to wake-up in. Rattan Chadha called this ‘affordable luxury for the people’. The first citizenM opened at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in 2008. As of November 2023, citizenM’s portfolio has 33 hotels in 20 exciting cities: London, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Paris, Copenhagen, Rome, Zurich, Geneva, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, Washington DC, Chicago, Menlo Park, Taipei and Kuala Lumpur.
