Ariel Palitz, Oaktree Solutions’ Managing Director for Hospitality and Intergovernmental Affairs, was recognized this week by City & State New York’s “2024 Above & Beyond: Women” awards.

This City & State award honors and celebrates women who are transforming New York. The women highlighted are role models for the next generation of politicians, nonprofits leaders, attorneys and cultural influencers and are known for breaking boundaries and achieving firsts.

Quoted by the publication, Palitz noted how her unique perspectives and experience running nightlife institutions have led her to become a voice for the industry. 

“The pandemic prompted New Yorkers to realize how vital entertainment and hospitality are to the city’s economy and sense of self. It’s a case Palitz had already been making for years,” City & State wrote. “Now a global ambassador for the industry, Palitz draws on her experience to propose solutions – like the city law that puts overdose-reversal medication behind every bar, or the replacement of New York’s punitive approach to nightlife complaints with mediation.”
