MCLEAN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the fifth consecutive year, Hilton has been recognized for its
commitment to diversity and inclusion by DiversityInc, being named a Top

the nation’s top companies that hire, retain and promote women,
minorities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ and veterans.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to receive this recognition from
DiversityInc, especially as we approach our 100th
anniversary,” said Matthew W. Schuyler, Chief Human Resources Officer,
Hilton. “For the last century, Hilton has opened its doors to more than
3 billion guests and 10 million Team Members whose diverse background

RV excursion through Sweden and Norway.
