- Hilton moves up 20 spots into the Top 10. CEO Chris Nassetta chairs the executive diversity council, which meets monthly, and he actively participates in the company's mentoring program.
- Last year, 6 of 9 people promoted into one level below the CEO and direct reports were women. The percentage of promotions into top management going to women increased by over 50 percent from a year ago.
- The catalyst for this movement was a mentorship program in which high-potential women were matched up with Nassetta and his direct reports. Each had 2 to 6 women mentees.
- Chief Human Resources Officer Matt Schuyler has 4 mentees and Laura Fuentes, SVP, Talent Reward and People Analytics is a mentee of Nassetta.
