Starwood Canada is proactively increasing the recognition and celebration of diversity in their hotels while creating more alliances with external organizations across Canada. The company is committed to becoming one of Canada’s Top Diversity employers. With a keen desire to nurture a more vibrant culture, rich in contrasting values, Starwood recognizes embracing the whole gamut of human potentialities so each diverse human gift will find a fitting place. By leveraging the company’s diversity, the company will be more creative and will increase organizational effectiveness and associate retention. This will make Starwood Canada a better place to work for Associates and a better place to stay for Guests.
