Exceeding expectations, improving our communities, and celebrating diversity are all principles on which Starwood was built. We are continuously striving to show our commitment to these principles. One of these efforts is our Supplier Diversity Program aimed to maximize the contracting opportunities given to minority owned businesses. We recognize minority businesses are playing an ever-increasing positive role in the economy and communities in which we operate. By fostering lasting relationships with minority businesses, we strive to provide opportunities that are mutually beneficial to both parties.
Starwood is committed to providing economic opportunities for all members of the communities in which we operate. We believe that the development of a community's resources benefits our company and the entire community as well. We support and encourage the participation of all of our properties and corporate offices in seeking out and taking the steps necessary to assure Diverse Suppliers a fair share in the economic opportunities available.
