The Diversity Council is an inclusive council dedicated to empowering our business community to celebrate diversity through education and kindness.
This council is working on gaining a deep understanding of multiple aspects of diversity and inclusion with each other as a group. We welcome committed and engaged speakers and community members to work with us and seek mutual support. This will empower our business community by fostering awareness of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and ripple out to every aspect of our lives.
Interested in Diversity & Inclusion?
The Diversity Council holds meetings once a month (check with the Chamber of Commerce office for the day and place it will be held as it varies month to month). We invite all Chamber members to join us for the training aspect of our meetings, generally half of the hour meeting. Some trainings involve a guest speaker at the Chamber, others may involve us out at a facility to tour, and others may be a video and facilitated discussion.
Some of the key topics our council is focusing on, but not limited to, include: unconscious bias, microaggression, and weakening stereotypes.
