Show Notes

DeShaun Wise Porter, Global Head, VP of Diversity and Inclusion and Engagement for Hilton International and team at Hilton have earned countless awards year over year, ranked number one Fortune 100 Best Places to Work for two years in a row. And number one on Diversity Inc, Top 50 Companies 2021 ranking, just to name a few. And our listeners are eager to hear how your organization plans, executes, adapts, and thrives in these challenging and highly rewarding times. DeShaun and I met at Kimberly Clark years ago as colleagues, and to this day we continue to share the passion for growing talent and a belief in the importance of everyone achieving their full potential in an environment that is inclusive, supportive, where we can all bring our best selves to work with a true sense of belonging, and purpose.

This episode, we'll discuss strategy, progress and culture. The hospitality industry is unique in that it represents talent from all walks of life. You could consider it a microcosm of society with diverse dimensions, identities, and intersectionality. A diverse talent community demands a flexible structure and commitment to inclusion and belonging at every level with accountability. DeShaun is innovating and setting the standard for over 360,000 team members with DEI through the lifecycle as Hilton attracts, advances, retains talent now and in the future.
