WE ENGAGE, SUPPORT & CREATE
BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN OUR COMMUNITIES
Diversity is continually promoted within our marketplace through our supplier diversity program, multi-cultural marketing to diverse customer segments, partnerships with numerous diverse nonprofit organizations, and development of property ownership for women and minorities.
HOW SUPPLIER DIVERSITY IS DRIVING CHANGE
The HSM team recently hosted its second annual Supplier Diversity summit bringing together Hilton leadership, industry experts and our diverse supplier community. This event allows HSM to showcase our commitment to increasing diversity in our global supply chain and fostering connections between diverse suppliers and Hilton business leaders.
The Supplier Diversity team at HSM has made it a priority to support diverse suppliers and empower them to reach their goals. As a result, we have developed the Diversity Advancement Fund. Each year, $10,000 is awarded to a minority-or women-owned business that has had an impact on economic development strategies designed to accelerate innovation and entrepreneurship.
We work closely with our collaborators to identify new suppliers by participating in Match Making and metnorship opportunities. These partnerships allow us to grow our base of certified diverse suppliers and increase our influence with other organizations working to advance diversity within supply chain.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY
Hilton and the Hilton Effect Foundation are working to create a better world to travel. Through our Travel with Purpose program, we have committed to cut our environmental footprint in half and double our social impact by 2030.
“For more than a decade, Hilton modeled transparent leadership by sharing demographic workforce data and supplier diversity initiatives, as well as specifics about the purpose and outcomes of talent development programs that focus on equitable opportunities for all Hilton Team Members.
Today, even with the challenges the hospitality industry faces, Hilton remains unwavering in its efforts to provide a transparent and credible account of all Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals and progress through its Travel with Purpose corporate social responsibility program. I look forward to witnessing the advances Hilton will continue to make to further its social impact goals focused on inclusive growth, human rights, and community investment, and I am proud to be a strategic partner.”
"Hilton's commitment to building a 'For All' culture is realized by using their values to drive meaningful long-term change that creates a Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive workplace For All. As a two-time, #1 Best Workplace in the U.S., the employee experience of their underrepresented population is the best of the 100BEST. In the last year, they have added new dimensions of diversity including critical additions to their Board and executive team and introduced their ‘Courageous Conversations’ series about race and injustice during the most difficult time in our country’s history. While all companies have ‘a long way to go’ Hilton is leading the pack!"
