AMTRAK understands that diversity not only begins with respect for our customer, but for a social responsibility that extends into the community. Our belief in corporate citizenship begins at the top and filters through our organization. When put in perspective, our communities define who we are as a company.

Many of our employees share this belief. They spend their personal time in the community as volunteers. They give their time and service to support a wide range of initiatives. By sharing our time, our talent and additional resources, Amtrak strives to maintain our duty to be a responsible corporate citizen.

Amtrak believes in diversity. For us, it’s more than a corporate buzzword. It’s an appreciation for all people. We believe every great adventure begins with an amazing experience.  Our goal is to provide that experience, time and time again. It doesn’t matter who goes along for the ride.

We are proud members of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association, the world’s leading LGBT travel network. Its mission is to connect and educate LGBT leisure travelers and of course businesses travelers around the world.

Amtrak is also a sponsor for national pride events such as Capital Pride, in Washington DC and New York Pride, in New York City. Pride events are organized as a way to inform, educate and support members of the LGBT community. The events consist of staff members as well as community  volunteers who provide support for the equal rights movement, in their respective cities and elsewhere.
