Marriott's commitment to global diversity encompasses every business unit worldwide and our supplier diversity initiatives are an integral part of how we do business every day. At Marriott, working with locally-owned businesses in the communities in which we operate is a business imperative. It's a win for the community and a win for business—yours and ours.
Our relationships with thousands of minority-, woman-, service veteran-, disabled-, and LGBT-owned businesses around the globe continue to grow and strengthen. Last year alone, we spent nearly $480 million with diverse suppliers and we are always raising the bar to ensure continuous growth and improvement.
Whether it's in our hotels or through our second-tier vendor program, we want to find the best way to work together. We know how hard it can be for a small business with a good idea to find the right door to knock on. Marriott's Supplier Diversity Program was created to make it easier for us to find one another.
