Executive Excellence

The MGM MIRAGE promotes not only ability, but diversity as well.

The MGM Mirage is one of the finest purveyors of the resort and gambling experience, with a wealth of hotel casinos under its umbrella including 11 of the top properties in Las Vegas—Bellagio, MGM Grand Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Excalibur, Luxor, New York New York, Monte Carlo, Treasure Island, Circus Circus, and Railroad Pass.

MGM Mirage, with all its fine properties, has something just as impressive to be proud of—its outstanding record of promoting diversity in its work force. You’ll notice that the company made our 2006 Latin Business Corporate Diversity Honor Roll, and we’d also like to highlight a couple of MGM Mirage executives who prove how valuable a diverse workplace can be.

 

 

Irene Bustamante Director of Diversity Relations
Ms. Bustamante is responsible for assisting in the implementation of the company’s diversity initiative and for the management of numerous local and national strategic alliances, all of which position MGM Mirage as a leader among other Fortune 500 companies committed to diversity.

In 1993, Ms. Bustamante began her career at MGM Grand Las Vegas as a community affairs clerk and was later promoted to community affairs specialist. In November 2001, she transferred to a corporate position for parent company MGM Mirage, where she was named corporate diversity manager. She was promoted to her current position of director in October 2002.

Active in the community on a local and national level, Ms. Bustamante is a member of the Latin Chamber of Commerce board of directors and also serves as treasurer. She also serves as executive director of the Hope Worldwide–Las Vegas chapter, board member of the Nevada Minority Business Council, board member of the Family and Child Treatment of Southern Nevada, member of the Business Development Advisory Council for the Organization of Chinese Americans, member of the Senior Executive Advisory Council for the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and founding member of the Southern Nevada Latina Network.
