Wynn Resorts appoints new Culture and Community head

By Robert Simmons

Attempting to rebuild its tarnished public image following the allegations of sexual misconduct against its former CEO, Steve Wynn, Wynn Resorts have announced the creation of a Culture and Community Department.

Corinne Clement has been appointed as Vice President of the new department which aims to support diversity and inclusion, gender equality and fair treatment in the workplace.

The new department will also support employee charitable efforts in communities in which Wynn Resorts casinos and hotels are located.

Clement has been with Wynn Resorts since 2014, serving as Executive Director of Human Resources for Wynn Palace and most recently as Executive Director of Innovation and Creative Development at Wynn Las Vegas.

In her new role, Clement will oversee the company's diversity and inclusion efforts, as well as bolster leadership development, employee education experiences, and community relations.

Announcing her appointment on the company’s website, Wynn Resorts CEO, Matt Maddox said: "Now more than ever we are committed to ensuring equality, creating leaders, and giving back to the communities in which we operate. The launch of our Culture and Community Department speaks to this promise, and will help us continue to be the industry employer of choice."

One of the most significant initiatives launched by this fledgling department will be the Women’s Leadership Forum, which the company confirmed is “designed to further close the gender gap in management, provide career growth opportunities for female employees at all levels, create pay and title equity, and ensure a safe workplace”.

This may be the first of many changes for the Las-Vegas resorts developer as it looks to rehabilitate its public image and draw a line under the alleged actions of its former CEO.
