Memorable Moments

Victory for Love!

Today, we join the United States in celebrating history. This is more than celebrating during Pride month, more than wearing purple to support the Spirit Day. This is about celebrating that, in the U.S., as well as a growing list of countries, the lifelong commitment any two people choose to make to one another will finally be viewed with equal respect and recognition. As a company committed to inclusion for all, we celebrate this victory with our LGBT colleagues and our guests.

The joy we feel as a result of this ruling is because Hyatt has been supporting our LGBT colleagues, guests and the larger community for years. We were the first hospitality company to offer same-sex benefits to domestic partners, we’ve received a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign for the past 11 years, and we are passionate about the need for our colleagues to bring their whole self to work. We believe that it is our diversity that makes us great.

We remain as committed as ever to the LGBT community and to those on the front lines of this fight, congratulations on making history!

Sharing Pride in Our Hyatt Family

You may know June is traditionally a time when cities around the world hold events to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens, and my hometown of Chicago is preparing for one of the largest celebrations with the annual Pride parade. Reflecting on the many festivities that Hyatt is supporting this month around the world, I wanted to take a moment to share the pride I have in my Hyatt family.
