LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has announced a pledge of $250,000 to expand its Diversity and Inclusion Program and support local nonprofit organizations.

The funds will be allocated in the coming months across new CoStar (employee) diversity training resources, monetary donations to nonprofit organizations, and a sizeable commitment to the Hannah Brown Community Development Corporation Scholarship Fund.

Currently, the resort continues to work alongside Diversity Best Practices, a renowned organization for executive diversity thought leaders, and in partnership with Western Regional Minority Supplier Development Council to seek out minority-owned vendor partners, and to develop innovative solutions for continual culture change within the community.

This charitable pledge comes on the heels of the resort-casino donating $250,000 in pallets of food to local charities and foodbanks over the closure earlier this year, as well as the ongoing pledge to match up to $10,000 of all Giving Module donations each quarter.

The hotel says it is on track to compete with its past yearly monetary donations, $1.6 million in 2018 and $1.7 million in 2019.
