Hilton Wins USPAACC's Most Distinguished Corporation for Diversity Award
Hilton, the global hospitality company, has won the Most Distinguished Corporation for Diversity Award from the US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC) during its CelebrAsian Procurement & Business Conference.
The winner was announced during USPAACC's 33rd Anniversary flagship CelebrAsian Procurement & Business Conference – the country's largest and most established B2B conference convened by Pan Asian Americans – held May 29 to June 1, 2018 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
The Award was presented by PepsiCo Chairman & CEO Indra Nooyi, who also served as Conference Chair, and USPAACC National President & CEO Susan Au Allen at the Excellence Awards Dinner on May 30.
The Most Distinguished Corporation for Diversity Award recognizes the corporation's influential leadership and sustained commitment that bring true value to the increasingly diverse America through outreach, hiring, education and utilization of Pan Asian American suppliers, and the positive impact they have brought to the Pan Asian American community.
Anu Saxena, SVP Hilton Supply Management, accepted the award at the conference.
"Hilton is truly deserving of this award because of its demonstrated long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion over a variety of fronts," said USPAACC's Allen. "A diverse and inclusive workplace fosters creativity and innovation, increases competition and opens doors for diverse businesses to become a significant part of an ecosystem that drives business growth in the increasingly seamless global marketplace."
The Dinner was attended by CEOs, CPOs, CTOs, CIOs, Presidents, Directors, procurement and marketing managers, buyers, industry leaders and key decision-makers from Fortune 1000 Corporations, government agencies, large nonprofits, and top-caliber Asian American suppliers, successful business owners, and other VIP guests including the diplomatic corps.
