Diversity & Inclusion

Seeking a Better Future for Scottsdale

Experience Scottsdale’s mission is to promote the Scottsdale area as a luxury destination for meetings, events and leisure travel. In doing so, we invite people from all over the country and world to visit and meet in Scottsdale.

To fully realize that mission, the team at Experience Scottsdale recognizes our organization must become more diverse and inclusive inside and out. With that, we are reevaluating our hiring and recruiting practices, building connections with business coalitions, and engaging our staff on discussions about diversity, inclusion and equality. We are striving to ensure our promotions and storytelling are more reflective of our visitors. And we are voicing our support for social justice with the hope that our community embraces meaningful and sustainable change.

People of all races, sexual orientations, gender identities, religions, physical abilities and backgrounds not only visit Scottsdale but also call Scottsdale home. They include our employees, colleagues, neighbors, family members and friends. We could not stand by our work if we did not believe people would feel safe and welcome in Scottsdale no matter their differences.

At this crucial time in our nation’s history, the team at Experience Scottsdale supports the Black community and movements to spotlight and eradicate systemic racism and longstanding racial injustice, violence and exclusion in our country. Like much of the nation, our community is not free from racism, discrimination and inequality. We are fully committed to doing our part to listen, learn, and actively work with community leaders toward healing and change.

Experience Scottsdale proudly promotes Scottsdale. We proudly celebrate the diversity of our community members and visitors. And we proudly commit to seeking a better future for our organization and community.
