Commitment to Human Rights
|As Marriott has grown and expanded globally, our business has become more diverse. We recognize that an inclusive environment strengthens our company and provides a competitive advantage.
Marriott's commitment to diversity includes employees, owners and franchisees, customers and suppliers, and is driven by our Board of Directors. With nearly 450 hotels owned or under development by minorities and women, we are well on our way to achieving our goal of 500 by 2010. After surpassing our goal of $1 billion in spending with diverse suppliers three years ahead of schedule, we have set a new goal to spend 15 percent by 2009.
Over 18 years, the Marriott Foundation for People with Disabilities has built a highly reputed program, "Bridges . . . from school to work.®" More than 10,000 young people with disabilities have received job and life skills training and been placed in jobs.
