In 2000, MGM Resorts International became the first gaming company to voluntarily declare a formal diversity initiative as a matter of integrity and as a business imperative. The premise for our declaration is a simple reality: our Company is a microcosm of our world. Among our employees, our guests, our business partners and our suppliers, the four corners of our planet intersect. To achieve our Company mission to entertain the human race, we embrace diversity and innovation to inspire excellence. Diversity and inclusion anchor a culture of mutual respect among our diverse collection of extraordinary people–our greatest strength. We are all unique individuals, but we are all connected and interdependent.
Employee Network Groups
Our Employee Network Groups (ENGs) are a cornerstone of our culture. They reinforce inclusion teachings and practices, while providing communications and support networks for our employees. Our ENGs are hubs for leadership development and collaborative teamwork in support of business objectives.
They are designed to develop and strengthen relationships among employees with common identities, interests and issues; share valuable knowledge and information about career paths and development at our Company; provide mentoring; and support various company initiatives.
Corporate Social Responsibility Councils
Our Corporate Social Responsibility Councils are a cornerstone of our culture of diversity and inclusion. They reinforce inclusion teachings and practices, while providing communications and support networks for all employees. Each council is governed by its own self-directed structure and sets its own roster of annual activities. As a result, these councils are hubs for leadership development and collaborative teamwork in support of the Company’s business objectives and community engagement.
