[underline]Inclusion and diversity[/underline] in travel

Here at Expedia Group - and Expedia Partner Solutions - we celebrate and champion inclusion and diversity. We believe travel is a force for good and we're guided by an inclusive purpose - to strengthen connections, broaden horizons, and bridge divides for our employees, partners, travelers, and communities.

We believe travel can bring good into the world, and so our mission is to power global travel for everyone, everywhere. Through our technology and solutions, and in partnership with our B2B partners, we’ve embarked on a shared inclusion journey to inspire people across the world to experience and connect with new cultures, ideas, landscapes, and people.

[underline]Advancing[/underline] inclusion and diversity in the workplace

As part of our continued efforts to foster inclusion and diversity, Expedia Group joined hundreds of other companies in signing the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion Pledge. A unique collaborative of more than 1,600 CEOs, CEO Action states the pledge is 'the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace', with a commitment 'driven by a realization that addressing diversity and inclusion is not a competitive issue, but a societal issue.'

Alongside 800+ companies, we pledge to:

Continue to make our workplaces trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion.

Implement and expand unconscious bias education.

Be open and vulnerable in sharing best practices alongside practices that weren’t so successful.

Create and share strategic inclusion and diversity plans with our board of directors.
