Empowering our people to

The data provided utilizes the traditional gender categories of male and female to align with U.S. Federal government reporting requirements. The Company respects that gender identification is not binary.
Race & Ethnicity
At PENN Entertainment, we believe our differences make us stronger. We’re proud to celebrate diversity — from events for Black History Month and Pride Month to International Women’s Day and Chinese New Year. In 2021 and 2022, PENN Entertainment was named a Champion of Board Diversity by The Forum of Executive Women, and we were included in the 2021 Breakfast of Corporate Champions which recognizes companies that lead the way for gender balance on corporate boards. In 2021 and 2022, we were included in Forbes Magazine's list of America's Best Employers for Diversity — and have received accolades from the All-In Diversity Project, and the age-friendly institute.
Whoever you are. We have a career for you.
We’re building a more diverse and inclusive workforce — and helping our talented team members grow their careers in powerful ways. We want our people to feel empowered to bring their unique perspectives to the table and help drive our business forward.
A place to be yourself. A place to build your career.
Committed to our people
We’re committed to the professional development of all our team members. We offer tuition reimbursement and certification programs that help our people grow their careers and equip them with the fundamental leadership skills they need to succeed at PENN Entertainment.
Focused on diverse leaders
We’re focused on diverse and female leadership development. Through our Women Leading at PENN (WLP) program, we encourage women to pursue roles in leadership at our casinos and in the corporate offices. The results have been inspiring. Today, our executive team is 37.5% female — and growing.
Progress through inclusionWe believe a diverse, welcoming workforce is unstoppable. We formed the PENN Diversity Committee in 2020, during some of the most challenging times in our nation’s history. Our goal through this committee is to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive company.
“I could not be more honored and humbled to chair the PENN Diversity Committee. The committee is a testament to the company’s commitment to create a culture where every team member, regardless of their differences, can truly be themselves and belong.”
Justin Carter , Senior Vice President of Regional Operations and Chairman of the PENN Diversity Committee
Developing future leaders
Diversity Scholarship Fund
We’re focused on creating pathways for our PENN family to achieve their dreams. The PENN Diversity Scholarship helps create equity in higher education for children of our team members, many of whom are the first in their families to pursue post-secondary education.
Support for Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs)
In 2020, we committed to increasing diversity in our recruitment efforts, with a focus on attracting future leaders from a more diverse pool of candidates. Of the PENN Diversity Scholarship recipients, 10% will be attending HBCUs — and nearly 30% of our Leadership Excellence at PENN (LEAP) interns currently attend an HBCU. In addition, we’ve committed $4M in scholarships to support STEM programs at HBCUs.
Listen and learn
During our Days of Listening event, we heard directly from team members about the need for DEI training. We recognize that there are opportunities to improve company culture from within — and we will continue to work toward a more welcoming and inclusive workplace for all.
We’re proud to spotlight the service of our team members who served in the military. Our back-of-house Honor Wall highlights the careers of those who served and our internal newsletter, The Insider, gives us a chance to learn more about their unique perspectives and how they’re moving our company forward.
Pride at PENN
We believe allyship is a lifelong process of unlearning and relearning, understanding our differences, showing up for others, solidarity — and listening. We encourage our team members to create change in the workplace as strong allies of our LGBTQ+ coworkers.
