Carnival's Mission Around Diversity

Blue divider line

Our Mission

We are committed to a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion for our shoreside and shipboard team members, as well as our guests. Our company brings together many cultures, backgrounds, beliefs and points of view and every person shall be treated with dignity, courtesy and respect as we break down barriers, build friendships, and promote a greater understanding among people.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

Diversity

Diversity refers to who's at work: who is recruited, hired, and promoted by a company. It is the representation of a range of traits and experiences in a company's workforce.
For our corporation this means:
We are a better and more successful company when the diversity of race, age, gender, culture, beliefs and background is valued, respected and celebrated.

Equity

Equity enables individuals and the company to reach their full potential. In an equitable environment, all employees have opportunities and access to pursue their professional goals and aspirations.
For our corporation this means:
We incorporate equitable access into every opportunity and identify and remove systemic and unconscious barriers.

Inclusion

Inclusion refers to how people feel at work. A company’s workforce may be diverse, but if employees do not have a sense of belonging in which they feel safe, welcomed, and valued, that company isn’t inclusive and will not perform to its highest potential.
For our corporation this means:
Inclusion is essential and belonging is two-directional so that each employee feels valued, respected, accepted and encouraged to fully participate in the organization. We want each employee to have a sense of belonging, and we want all employees to convey to their colleagues that same sense of belonging through respect and acceptance.

Diversity is being invited to a party. Inclusion is being asked to dance. Equity is being on the party planning committee. Belonging is dancing like no one's watching.

Testimonials

Picture of President Christine Duffy

“With 120 nationalities making up our 35,000+ team members shipboard and shoreside, Carnival Cruise Line is inherently diverse. But we are still committed to creating an even more diverse, welcoming and supportive environment through our policies, practices and our Carnival Values that provide the guiding principles on which we all operate.

We have also identified Culture Essentials – expected behaviors for employees and leaders that are consistent across the Corporation. These Culture Essentials ensure that everyone understands how we should conduct ourselves: speak up; respect, protect and improve our culture, company and the environment; communicate in ways that demonstrate a willingness to listen, learn and empower our teams. These are simple yet powerful concepts that will unite us and make us better.

The Carnival Values and Culture Essentials then link to Carnival Corporation’s vision – a statement that clearly identifies what we must strive for each and every day: to operate safely, to protect the environment, and to be in compliance while delivering unmatched cruise vacations. And we will do that through a spirit of inclusion, the power of diversity, and serving as an outstanding corporate citizen. This is more important now than ever before.”

— Christine DuffyPresident

“Inclusion involves bringing together and harnessing the many beneficial forces and resources of diversity. It is such a critical component of a dynamic, diverse culture that I refer to it as an imperative. Inclusion puts the concept and practice of diversity into action by creating an environment of involvement, respect, and connection. Creating a diverse workforce is just half the equation. Diverse perspectives must be heard and all contributors are empowered. The one thing we all have in common is diversity.”

— Bettina DeynesSVP and Chief Human Resources Officer
