A deeper commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is imperative, not only because it is the right thing to do but because it is also good for our industry.

He will discuss the creation of the Marriott-Sorenson Center for Hospitality Leadership, to be housed at Howard University, one of the nation’s leading historically Black colleges and universities.
