Diversity and Inclusion

Inclusive regions prosper. According to ACCE's commissioned report, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION FOR THE 21ST CENTURY ECONOMY: An Imperative for Chambers of Commerce (Feb 2017), cities and regions that embrace diversity do better economically. The report outlines the business case for why chambers need a strategy to leverage diversity and champion inclusion.

ACCE adopted a Diversity and Inclusion Commitment Statement: "For the betterment of the association, chamber leaders and the communities they serve, ACCE will champion access and equity of opportunity through intentional inclusion of all." (Unanimously adopted by ACCE's Board of Directors, October 2015) See additional examples of chamber Diversity Statements.

What is Diversity & Inclusion?

For businesses and chambers, diversity can represent:
  • building an inclusive culture and environment where diversity is both embraced and leveraged as a competitive advantage,
  • developing and retaining talent by encouraging personal growth and celebrating individual and cultural differences, and
  • using the power of the mix -- strength that results from a team with varied experiences, backgrounds and styles -- to succeed.
