LOS ANGELES, March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Viceroy Hotels & Resorts, the global modern luxury brand, announces its official partnership with Out & Equal Workplace Advocates (O&E), the premier nonprofit organization working exclusively on LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

And as part of the relationship, Viceroy's human resources and learning professionals now have access to O&E's Global Hub; a "one-stop-shop" virtual education and engagement center for executives, DEIB, HR, L&D practitioners, and ERG leaders working for LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion. Through their worldwide programs, learning and development offerings, and annual Workplace Summit conference, O&E's mission is to support organizations to create and sustain cultures of belonging for all.

As part of Viceroy for Everyone, Viceroy has created and introduced an inaugural LGBTQ+ Travel Advisory Board with whom the Viceroy team meets regularly to discuss and create resolutions around current objectives, challenges and opportunities in order to create optimal inclusivity at all of their hotels and resorts.
