On the heels of becoming the first casino resort in Las Vegas to be certified as a 'Great Workplace' by the independent analysts at Great Place To Work, the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge is a continuation of Wynn Resorts' comprehensive approach to ensuring employees and guests feel welcome and accepted.

Primary initiatives include unconscious bias education for employees, which launched last year, in addition to sharing best practices and challenges with other companies and communicating strategic diversity and inclusion plans with the board of directors. The Company's board of directors also receive training in unconscious bias, anti-harassment and diversity.

"One of our guiding principles is 'to care about everyone and everything'. By signing this pledge, we are further cultivating a workplace where diversity is valued," said Maddox. "I believe we have the best team in the industry and our efforts to be even more inclusive will further our commitment to excellence."

Wynn Resorts has invested heavily in creating a workplace with an environment that fosters inclusion and acceptance for all. In 2019, the company introduced several important programs including training nearly 12,000 employees on unconscious biases to expanding employee-led councils that address issues facing our diverse group of team members and guests.
