COMMITTED TO AUTHENTICITY
In November 2010, a small group based at Marriott headquarters met for the first-ever Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Straight Ally group for Marriott International called ONE. This Associate Network was cultivated to serve as a voice for LGBTQ associates and their allies, as well as to create a supportive network for a community that had no formal representation before within the company.
With over 2,500 volunteer members in 25+ chapter around the world, ONE continues to move forward in seeking new ways to:
Develop community among members
Increase a diversity mindset to include LGBTQ issues, and
Assist in unleashing revenue opportunities with concentrated marketing & sales efforts within the LGBTQ community
Did You Know? Marriott is consistently recognized by the Human Rights Campaign as a 100 percent scorer on the Corporate Equality Index and one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality."
