Report details progress during 2021 and sets benchmarks for 2022 as Expedia Group continues its effort to advance an open, equitable workplace and travel experience for employees and travelers
SEATTLE, May 11, 2022 /3BL Media/ – Expedia Group today released its second annual Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) Report. Detailing progress achieved on key initiatives in 2021 and establishing standards for 2022, the report outlines the global company’s continued commitment to build and maintain an open, equitable workplace and experience with transparency for employees, partners, and travelers.
Much like EG’s executive leaders or board members, our IBG Global Leaders create lasting value for our business. In return, we are upping our support and investment in our IBGs and their global leaders. IBGs are invaluable to our culture and critical to our inclusion and diversity platform and business success. Our ultimate goal is to ensure our employees’ sense of belonging and cultivate inclusion together.
Expedia Group (EG) has made significant investments in our Inclusion Business Groups (IBGs) since they first launched. Over the years, our IBGs have grown significantly, added new chapters in nearly all our global offices, and delivered far-reaching awareness and development programs. Their impact includes the advancement of rising leaders and partnerships with teams across Talent Acquisition, Brands and Marketing, Products, Accessibility, and many more.
EG today shared its new Gender Transition Guide with employees, to better support transgender and gender non-conforming employees going through the gender transition process. These guidelines are based on recommendations from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and were developed in partnership with EG’s Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Advisory Inclusion Council (TGNC IAC), its Inclusion & Diversity I&D and People Teams, and the Pride Inclusion Business Group (IBG).
Earlier this year, we launched a “Meet our IBGs” blog series to reintroduce you to our Inclusion Business Groups (IBGs) and the talented global leaders guiding these communities. Our IBGs were initially formed to create spaces of solidarity and to provide resources to employees of identities that are traditionally underrepresented and historically excluded.
