									2003 DIVERSITY REPORT
“You must be the change you wish to see
             in the world.”

              Mahatma Gandhi




                    1
Diversity. Our Strength. Our Future.

On behalf of the MGM MIRAGE management team, I am proud to present our Company’s 2003 Diversity Report.
Last year was another year of dynamic milestones in our Diversity Initiative.

As our report shows, in 2003 we achieved steady progress on many strategic fronts. As part of our continuous effort to
integrate diversity into the core belief system of our Company culture, we completed diversity education for all levels
of management, as well as for several employee groups within our Company. With the leadership of our Diversity
Champions — the beacons of our diversity message throughout MGM MIRAGE, we are now poised to launch a
company-wide diversity communications campaign throughout our entire workforce.

We continued to institutionalize diversity as a seamless part of the infrastructure of key business operations including
recruitment, professional development, advertising and marketing, sales, public relations, purchasing, construction
and philanthropy. We made solid gains in the diversification of our management ranks and our management training
programs. Moreover, we expanded our outreach to emerging multicultural markets and solidified our relationships with
old and new partners alike across diverse communities and constituencies throughout our nation. We also made strides
in development of necessary internal systems and processes.

Our demonstrated record of performance again captured significant public recognition for our Diversity Initiative.
In July 2003, Fortune ranked MGM MIRAGE as No. 31 in that magazine’s listing of the “50 Best Companies for
Minorities” — a laudable achievement by any standard. MGM MIRAGE was the only Nevada-based company
so recognized, further underscoring our leadership of the gaming industry on diversity issues. For this prestigious
distinction, we applaud our tremendously dedicated employees who worked so tirelessly to make our
Diversity Initiative a living reality everyday throughout our Company.

The people pictured throughout this report are leaders in diversity at MGM MIRAGE, regardless of the position they hold. They are also
representative of many others striving to weave the values of diversity into the fiber of our culture.

As much as we have accomplished in the three short years since we chose to formalize our Diversity Initiative, we recognize that we are still
at the beginning of a far-reaching journey. Diversity — while a timeless, enduring value — is nonetheless an evolutionary process that will
require unwavering dedication, continuous innovation and focused work. However long our journey may be, we remain steadfast in our
commitment to the pursuit of excellence and diversity as the twin pillars of our Company’s strength and our future.



Sincerely,

                        “The World Works Here” at MGM MIRAGE

                        The Human Resources Council (HR Council), comprised of the directors and vice presidents of human resources for
                        all MGM MIRAGE operating companies, makes and implements policies and programs aimed at maximizing all aspects
Cynthia Kiser Murphey
Senior Vice President   of the employment experience of our employees — our Company’s greatest asset. Diversity is a primary focus of the
Human Resources
MGM MIRAGE              Human Resources Council. In 2003, the HR Council diversity agenda had three key areas of emphasis — diversity
                        education, professional development, and recruitment. Here are some of our results:

                        Diversity Education
                        Education is the key to instilling diversity as a core value in the MGM MIRAGE culture. To that end,
                               85 employees completed Diversity Champion training, which expands our internal team to more than 200
                                employees dedicated and equipped to broadcast our diversity message and serve as agents for positive change

                               More than 4,000 supervisors and managers completed Diversity Management training

                               Customized diversity training geared to the special circumstances of their particular operations was provided
                                to 32 corporate retail buyers, more than 700 employees representing half of our security workforce and
                                120 purchasing personnel

                               The first stages of our diversity communications campaign was launched for all front-line employees with
                                newsletter features and message posters displayed in prominent employee areas


                        Professional Development Programs
                        Education is the key to preparation of our employees, including minorities and women, for professional growth and
                        potential career advancement.
                               REACH, a groundbreaking collaboration among MGM MIRAGE, Nevada Partners and the Culinary Training
                                Academy, was launched in 2003 as a six-month program designed to equip participating front-line employees with



                                                                            6

      the skills necessary to compete for the first-level management position of supervisor. 20 employees graduated in our first REACH
      class, 70% of whom were minorities and 60% of whom were women.

     16 employees representing many of our hotel-casinos company-wide (31% minorities; 56% women) completed our comprehensive
      Management Associate Program (MAP), and 22 supervisors and employees (45% minorities; 55% women) completed the Take
      Flight Management Development Program at Primm Valley Resorts. Both programs are designed to prepare participants for the
      rigors of management positions above the level of supervisor.

     17 director-level employees (18% minorities; 41% women) completed the MGM Grand and New York-New York Leadership
      Institute, and 26 director-level employees (19% minorities; 31% women) completed the Mirage Resorts Executive
      Leadership Program, both of which immerse participating managers in the demands of executive-level leadership
      and management.

Recruitment
     We recognize that education of the talent pool of qualified minority students today is the key to diverse leadership
      tomorrow. In 2003, MGM MIRAGE commenced an innovative partnership with the University of Nevada,
      Las Vegas College of Hotel Administration (LVCHA) whose goal is to attract and graduate greater numbers of
      qualified minorities to the company. MGM MIRAGE committed $500,000 for the establishment of a Minority
      Recruitment Fund and an MGM MIRAGE Minority Scholarship Fund at LVCHA. MGM MIRAGE will also
      participate with LVCHA in its student recruitment efforts, provide summer internships for MGM MIRAGE
      scholarship recipients, and host LVCHA professors on short-term sabbaticals at Company hotel-casinos for
      supplementation of their knowledge of current industry practices.


                                                                                                            Mary Kenneth

       MGM MIRAGE launched a new recruitment campaign entitled “The World Works Here” to showcase the
        remarkable range of diverse talent in our workforce and to recruit new employees of all profiles to our
        Company ranks.

       A college recruitment manager was hired to develop and implement a systematic strategy for MGM MIRAGE
        recruitment of college and university graduates for hire, and to enhance the appeal of MGM MIRAGE as
        the “employer of choice.”

Building Stronger Communities through Philanthropy

The MGM MIRAGE Charitable Giving Program, our Company’s primary philanthropic fund, concentrates on
support of the communities where our employees live, work and care for their families. We have made diversity an
intrinsic element of our three primary funding priorities — childhood development, community development, and
education. We aim to make every funding commitment advance diversity through service of the needs of lower
socio-economic or minority communities.

The following are illustrative examples of worthy recipients of some of our Company’s donations in 2003:

       Classroom on Wheels, a Las Vegas non-profit organization that provides early childhood education for three
        and four-year-old children in at-risk neighborhoods

       Aid for AIDS of Nevada provides services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS

       A Las Vegas college preparatory high school at which MGM MIRAGE will endow over five years a
        scholarship fund for economically disadvantaged youth
