Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Access
Making diversity, equity, inclusion, and access a business accelerator
Our Central Ohio community is vibrant and diverse! We believe businesses should reflect that rich diversity in their inclusive workplaces with equitable policies, programs, and practices. This charge is right for society and the economy.
How do we define diversity, equity, inclusion, and access?
Diversity – seeking to ensure a range of people with various racial, ethnic, gender, socio-economic, cultural, sexual orientation, age, lifestyle, access, experience, and interest backgrounds are represented across our Chamber and community
Equity – seeking to ensure fair treatment, regardless of race, equality of opportunity, and fairness in access to resources and information to all
Inclusion – seeking to build a culture of belonging by actively inviting contribution and participation
Access – seeking to expand access to work with business, community, government leaders, and others to create multifaceted value in the way employers evolve in how they leverage diversity, instill equity, lead with an inclusive lens
