Diversity And Hospitality Upper Management

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2020 Current Population Survey, about 80.9% of hospitality management positions are held by White workers, versus the 7% held by Black or African American workers. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) also reported that diversity in upper management has been declining year after year. In 2007, 29% of upper management positions were held by people of color and in 2015, it decreased to 19%.
