Atascadero Chamber Diversity

The Atascadero Chamber of Commerce believes there is no room for discrimination of any kind in the workplace. As a community builder, we are dedicated to making intentional, actionable strides to ensure our city is one of increased equity and inclusion.

We invite you – business leaders – to join us in our pledge of responsibility and accountability. Now is the time to use our influential voices to foster workplace environments that demand fair treatment, resources, opportunities, and advancement for all.

The Pledge

LEADERS responsible for ensuring there are no barriers based on economic position, gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender
identity, national origin, disability, or any other characteristic.

LISTENERS who recognize in order to create workplaces representative of the diversity in our community, we need to actively identify
opportunities for meaningful, honest conversations to take place.

EDUCATORS committed to providing permanent policies, resources and education for our employees and ourselves on unconscious bias, equity, discrimination, and diversity.

ADVOCATES who will use our positions and voices to address issues of racism, oppression, bias in both our community and place of business.

CHANGE-MAKERS united in this pledge to hold ourselves accountable as we take action to remove the systemic barriers that prevent all employees from feeling equally respected, supported, and valued.

In addition, I pledge to review and adopt 3 or more of the policies and practices offered by the DEI checklist herein.

I pledge to be part of the solution; to implement practices and policies reflective of the changes we seek. We can and will do better – as business leaders, individuals, and as a united community.
