What is Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion?
Diversity = Representation (many people, many experiences, many cultures, many voices; this is how we innovate)
Inclusion = Including (purposefully engaging others, trust-building and truly connecting)
Equity = Freedom from bias (as much as humanly possible, practicing impartiality)
As a part of our ongoing commitment to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber commits to the following strategies:
Continue to promote values of diversity and inclusion amongst the Downriver business community and SWCRC membership by providing positive messaging that empowers regional job providers and entrepreneurs with a vision to champion inclusion, empathy, respect, and decency in the workplace.
- Social media messaging
- Electronic newsletter messaging
- Messaging at SWCRC events and programs
The Task Force will meet every 6 months to review our policy and commitment to DE&I in depth, and to measure its impact on the SWCRC membership and the Downriver community. Our strategy is subject to updates and revisions to better serve the SWCRC membership over time. The Task Force will review SWCRC membership demographic data, programming, and more to enhance the strategy and the SWCRC’s service to its membership at each meeting.
