anti-racism and business
We at the Chamber realize that we can no longer just be against racism, rather we need to take anti-racist action and work toward anti-racist policies. This will be good for our community, good for our economy, and therefore, good for our businesses. We are taking steps to make sure we live up to this standard so we can better affect others and move our community forward. This will be hard work and an ongoing process, but one that will make us better for it.
OPEN LETTER In response to the gruesome death of George Floyd, we join all local, regional, and national leaders in condemning this unjust taking of a life.

The sessions are designed to engage participants who are looking for space to discuss equity literacy and organizational development. The facilitators are experienced equity practitioners and established leaders in the public and private sectors. Participants will gain knowledge and skills that will help them navigate a roadmap to practice and achieve levels of equity, inclusion and anti-racism in their businesses.
