This is the second in a series of roundtables with some of the industry's top thought leaders in which we will discuss actionable best practices to ensure the needs of diverse guests are met in a thoughtful, inclusive, and hospitable way.


In this roundtable the council discussed initiatives and programs that are being done well and have shown concrete positive change in the industry. 
What resources do hotels need to ensure all guests are treated equally?
One of the goals of the council is to continue to keep these issues top of mind.
Another goal is to provide resources ideas and tools for those in our industry looking to better their companies and hotels.
