Supplying our business. Creating opportunity. Advancing diversity.

We’re focused on creating diversity in every aspect of our business — from the floors of our casinos to the people who keep them running with the supplies we need. Our goal is to develop new opportunities for diverse suppliers through our supply chain. 

Supplier Diversity Initiative

The Supplier Diversity Initiative is a coordinated effort at the corporate level — and across all of our destinations — to develop strong partnerships with diversity suppliers. Putting diversity first, we more than doubled our diversity spend in our first year, partnering with businesses owned by minorities, women, disabled individuals and veterans.


Moving forward, our goal is to increase our spending 3% every year. In addition, we’re continuing to enhance our efforts through the PENN Small Business Incubator — a program that onboards minority businesses and assists them in growing from local to national suppliers within our company.
