Diversity is a growing topic inside businesses big and small, especially those with a human resources department. But what about the small local businesses that make up the majority of our Chamber membership?
Business leaders are having more open conversations about diversity and inclusion in the workplace. While this isn’t novel, the spotlight on racial, gender and other biases has rejuvenated talks about increasing workplace diversity and equal opportunities. The goal is to create a workplace with open communication channels that allow all employees can express their opinions and concerns. This is precisely what chambers of commerce like us seek to achieve.
