How else are you involved with giving back to the community?

We’ve built important relationships with a host of LGBTQ organizations, such as the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance, the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association, and The Human Rights Campaign. Our partnerships provide additional philanthropy and visibility to the larger LGBTQ community. Borgata’s commitment to the LGBTQ community doesn’t just end with the resort experience. The property proudly supports diversity and embraces its LGBTQ travel enthusiasts, team members and friends by presenting a multi-tier approach to inclusivity—from creating a premier travel experience to ensuring a workplace that’s committed to providing equal employment for all team members. Diversity and inclusivity training is provided to all of Borgata’s team members to ensure this promise is met on every level.
