Universal Love: Wedding Songs Reimagined
Universal Love represents the intersection of MGM Resorts position as an entertainment leader and its commitment to diversity and inclusion. Entertainment, in this case, music, should be universal with options that speak to everyone’s personal experiences.
MGM Resorts is an entertainment company, through and through. For nearly two decades, we have been a leader in diversity and inclusion and LGBTQ rights. As we thought about the intersection for those two important pillars of our DNA, we saw a gap -- there really wasn’t music that connected to one of the most important values of our organization – inclusion. We believe that everyone should have that experience with music that speaks to them specifically.
Inclusion of diverse suppliers in the commerce of our supply chain is a major priority in our global procurement program. Our goal is to provide business opportunities which promote our strategic objectives of quality and price competition, to our competitive advantage. This provides diverse enterprises with economic opportunity, access to developmental guidance, capacity-building experience and the potential for repeat business critical to growth. While the procurement landscape is constantly shifting due to global consolidation and other economic forces, we attempt to connect opportunities in our supply network to local and small businesses where possible
We continue to lead our industry in inclusion and empowerment of diverse businesses in our construction projects, including maintenance and renovation of existing facilities as well as new development and construction. We engage in continuous efforts to identify capable diverse businesses with priority where possible to local enterprises. We use a variety of techniques—such as partnerships, mentorships and job segmentation—to extend diversity participation and foster growth of diverse businesses into more viable enterprises. We make our diversity business an imperative industry necessity for our contractors and service providers, with an aggressive pace for diversity participation.
