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
One way we continue to raise the bar and lead within our industry is through HSM’s annual Supplier Diversity Summit, now entering its fifth year. Held in December, last year’s engagement and education event for diverse suppliers saw our highest Summit participation to date, with 350+ new and existing supplier partners tuning in to take part.
In addition to virtual networking opportunities and category-specific breakout sessions, our Supplier Diversity team highlighted a number of new partnership opportunities designed to drive small and diverse businesses forward using the power of the Hilton engine.
Discover the ins and outs of our procurement program as we continuously strive for excellence in responsible sourcing and the creation of strong, diverse supplier partnerships.

As part of our publicly stated 2030 Travel with Purpose Goals, Hilton has committed to doubling our sourcing spend from local, Small-and Medium-sized enterprises as minority-owned suppliers for managed hotels and corporate offices by 2030. To further support these objectives, Hilton established the Supplier Diversity Council, which provides guidance and recommendations to help us maintain a robust and inclusive supply chain. The council meets quarterly and works closely with Hilton’s Leadership team to ensure the prioritization and development of diverse suppliers.
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!"
