MGM Resorts International recognized for excellence in supplier diversity

6 October 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- MGM Resorts International has been recognized by the Institute for Supply Management as a 2022 ISM Supply Chain Trailblazer Organizational Award recipient. Specifically, MGM Resorts was honored as a diversity champion for its accomplishments in advancing diversity within the organization and profession.

The ISM Supply Chain Trailblazer Awards celebrate organizational programs that set new standards, drive new possibilities and exceed expectations – setting the bar and helping advance the supply management profession. MGM Resorts develops partnerships with community partners and suppliers to support diverse businesses and benefit communities in which the company operates.

"MGM Resorts is committed to using our size and scale to make a meaningful difference, and we are grateful for the chance to help expand opportunities and elevate the incredible work being done by these businesses in our communities," said Jim Czarnecki, Chief Procurement Officer at MGM Resorts. "We thank the ISM for this honor and are eager to continue our cultivation of partnerships with diverse suppliers and enable positive economic impact in our communities."

In addition to its supplier diversity framework, MGM Resorts supports the development of business skills and growth capacity of diverse businesses through its yearly Supplier Diversity Mentorship Program, an eight-month program designed to identify and address critical business development gaps for diverse-owned businesses to compete in a global supply chain. Through the program, which has a goal to graduate 150 diverse-owned businesses by 2025, business leaders are given the tools to enhance operational efficiencies, harness financial management and elevate leadership acumen.

The supplier diversity program at MGM Resorts includes businesses that are at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by minorities, women, the economically disadvantaged, veterans, LGBTQ+ individuals and persons with disabilities. The effort is part of the Company's larger commitment to be Focused on What Matters: Embracing Humanity and Protecting the Planet, which articulates the commitment to a set of priorities and goals that will generate actions that have an enduring impact on the world.
