Support the vision of the Blue Springs Chamber, i.e. a strong and prosperous economy that celebrates diversity, champions equity and cultivates inclusion
Evaluate the DEI needs of members and identify what resources might be provided by the Chamber or others.
Encourage the cultural competency of members by:
creating educational opportunities,
raising awareness, and
providing strategies and tools to cultivate the vision of the Blue Springs Chamber
Celebrate current DEI efforts of our members and promote a positive mindset around DEI efforts through recognition of successful efforts in our business community.
Develop a network for business leaders to feel safe and comfortable asking questions around DEI related topics in the workplace. (This could be business partners to talk and/or an online resource guide)
