If you know Hyatt, you know a workplace environment where our associates feel valued for who they are and where they can be their best every day is central to who we are. It's what makes Hyatt a great place to come to work, and it's what helps our associates provide the kind of authentic hospitality our guests expect at each of our hotels around the world. Our team is a family, and we're proud to be recognized for our commitment to this unique culture.
Recently, the Association of Diversity Councils, a practice group of diversity and inclusion consulting and training firm PRISM International, Inc., named Hyatt's North America Diversity & Inclusion Council to its list of the 2012 Top 25 U.S. Diversity Councils. This award honors council groups making strides with diversity processes inside and outside of their organizations. Hyatt's Diversity & Inclusion Council works hand-in-hand with business units and groups on various company initiatives, including Employee Network Groups and national partnerships.
We want to thank each of councilmembers for their leadership and commitment to Hyatt's culture and values. Thanks to their hard work, we're fortunate to have the great people and workplace that we do.
We're humbled to be recognized with an incredible group of corporations, governmental agencies, military and higher education institutions dedicated to inclusion, and we look forward to joining those peers this October for the 2012 Diversity Council Conference at Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Washington, D.C.
