Elie Maalouf, Chief Executive Officer, Americas, IHG, said: “As a company with more than 3,800 hotels in the U.S. alone, we know we have massive potential to drive positive change in the communities where we operate by embracing our different backgrounds, and celebrating the core values that bring us together. At IHG, it is this inclusivity that has created an empowering sense of belonging among our colleagues.


We applaud the efforts of all organizations working to promote LGBTQ workplace equality and commend the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for its continued leadership in championing these important initiatives.”
