MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton has been inducted into DiversityInc’s Hall of Fame for the Top Companies for Diversity. This honor follows Hilton placing #1 on the Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2021 and continuing to prove its leadership in diversity, equity and inclusion efforts. This award marks the company’s eighth consecutive year on this prestigious list recognizing the nation’s top companies that hire, retain and promote women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ and veterans.

“For more than 100 years, we have been guided by the belief that our hospitality has the power to bring people together and create a greater understanding around the world,” said Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton. “This recognition builds on the work we started more than a decade ago to create the best, most-inclusive home for our team members – and it’s a true testament to the community we've built together.”
Hilton previously announced its plans to increase gender and ethnic diversity in leadership roles, committing to achieve global gender parity and 25 percent ethnic diversity in the U.S. at its corporate leadership levels by 2027. The most recent data was published in the organization’s Annual ESG Report last month, showing progress on both goals.
“One of our hotel team members recently shared that they are ‘particularly proud to work for Hilton because of its authenticity and culture of inclusion, which allows all to be heard, regardless at what level of the company you work,’” said Laura Fuentes, executive vice president and chief human resources officer, Hilton. “That statement epitomizes our culture. It’s because of our team members that we have earned the honor of being included in DiversityInc’s Hall of Fame. We know our work to be the best and most inclusive workplace for all is a journey without an end and we look forward to continuing our work together.”
