MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL has been named one of the best companies for diversity in US, in Black Enterprise Magazine’s latest special report.
The only casino resort operator featured by the publication, which outlines 50 organisations in total, MGM saw its diversity and inclusion practices praised.
Black Enterprise charged its research division with sending surveys in excess of 1,000 of the largest publicly traded and global companies with significant US Operation.
Phyllis James, Chief Diversity and corporate responsibility officer for MGM resorts international, said: “We are incredibly honoured to achieve this recognition from Black Enterprise. As a responsible corporation we strive daily to embed diversity and inclusion in the core of our company’s culture and operations, for the empowerment it brings to our employees and the strength it brings to our business.”
“We salute Black Enterprise for this effort that continues to send a strong message of the moral imperative, business necessity and transformational value of diversity and inclusion in America.”
In 2000 MGM installed a voluntary diversity and inclusion initiative, as well as debuting a policy requiring minority business enterprise participation in all construction bids.
The result of this has seen over $4.5bn spent with certified diverse owned business enterprise since establishment.
