Welcome all and advance human rights

Welcome all and advance human rights

Travel is one of the most powerful tools for promoting peace and cultural understanding

With the goal of creating a safe, welcoming world for all, we rally for pro-travel policies and support programs that allow people to experience and understand other cultures. We work with leading nonprofit organizations to educate, advocate for and protect human rights throughout and beyond our business.

Human Rights

Human Rights

As a leader in the travel and tourism industry, we have taken the lead in the fight against some of the industry’s highest-risk and most pressing issues, including human trafficking, exploitation and forced labor. Through nonprofit partnerships, creating and implementing training, advocacy and supplier accountability, we contribute to the fight to uphold human rights among all people.

Cultural Understanding

With a global presence, it is imperative that we truly understand, respect and welcome all cultures. Through partnerships, training and education, we work to build cultural competence through travel to ensure that our hotels are a place of inclusion and comfort for all people.
