Hyatt has also shown its support and commitment to LGBT associates through the formation of HyPride, an employee networking group for members and supporters of the LGBT community, which gives all Hyatt associates the opportunity to have a voice within the company.To celebrate LGBT Pride Month 2012, Hyatt teamed up with the Human Rights Campaign to raise awareness of the organization’s mission and Hyatt’s commitment to fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment for LGBT associates and guests. Volunteers from HyPride joined HRC representatives volunteering at seven Pride events across the country. Last month, Hyatt associates across the United States joined HyPride to celebrate and bring awareness to Spirit Day. Spirit Day, organized by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), was started in 2010 by high school student Brittany McMillan as a way to show support for LGBT youth and to take a stand against bullying of such individuals. Hyatt supported its participation of Spirit Day on Facebook and Twitter, and continues to team up with GLAAD and its programs. Hyatt has a long history of being a recognized leader in promoting and nurturing a diverse workforce and it remains steadfastly committed to diversity in the workplace.
