Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

One of Los Angeles’ greatest strengths is the diversity of our community.

Engaging the Talent of the Future

Authentic to the core, our community is our city’s story and soul. And the essence of our destination, ‘Everyone is Welcome,’ extends beyond the invitation to a diverse, world-class experience. In Los Angeles, that welcome is our substance. Our spirit. A turning point for many. That welcome can be life-changing – even at a meeting or convention.
LA’s inherence of diversity, equity and inclusion are deep-seated in our business events industry. LA Tourism partners with the city’s organizations on corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives that continue to bring DEI values to the forefront of representation.
The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) Career Academy — created by the City Tourism Department and in a unique partnership with ​​LA Tourism and LACC — gives students in historically underserved areas of LA the opportunity to visit the Convention Center during a convention or event and engage with national and global leaders working in various industries. 
Imagine representatives from your association, corporate group or organization coming to LA and doing something tangible, meaningful and impactful on the lives of others.


These initiatives are brought to life by the dynamism of our city and the heart of our people. We welcome you to come to experience them.
