Diversity & Inclusion

Marriott hotel staff gathered together

Since 1927, Marriott has valued diversity and inclusion. With our foundation built upon the wellbeing and happiness of our associates, embracing differences is critical to our success as the largest hospitality company with an ever growing global portfolio. Diversity and inclusion is fundamental to our core values and strategic business goals. Taking care of people and putting their wellbeing above all else is in our Company’s DNA and our most precious cultural inheritance. Marriott has identified three pillars of associate wellbeing: We all need to feel good about ourselves, the workplace, and about our company’s role in society. This is the foundation of our TakeCare Movement which will continue to drive our commitment to always put people first and ensure our cultural legacy is kept vibrant for generations to come.

Marriott International is committed to transparency and open dialog on diversity, equity and inclusion. View the 2021 EEO-1 report hereOpens in a new browser window (PDF).

Corporate Diversity

At Marriott, the foundation for diversity and inclusion is promoting “UNITY and Family.” Through UNITY, we create an inclusive environment that supports the recruitment, retention, and advancement of all employees, and actively engages in efforts to develop a diverse and inclusive workforce, owner, guest and supplier base.

Global Diversity

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion extends to global markets, where we work with local communities to create opportunities, value differences, and foster a positive sense of wellbeing.


Marriott has long standing partnerships with over 30 diversity organizations. We value these relationships as their missions align with our diversity and inclusion efforts.
