DIVERSIFY Virtual Summit is our Chambers signature DEI event highlighting the culturally diverse businesses in our area and best practices on growing diversity, equity and inclusion across the region. The Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce continues its commitment to creating a business community that includes everyone. A portion of this mission is accomplished by bringing keynote speakers to our annual summit and discussing how inclusive businesses lead to regional economic growth.
The dual crises of COVID-19 and the unrest that swept our country, last year, put a spotlight on the high cost of racial and economic inequality. The Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce continues its commitment to creating a business community that includes everyone. Diversify Virtual Summit was hosted on June 18, highlighting diversity, equity and inclusion in the 21st century workplace. Diversify featured breakout sessions led by industry professionals and a keynote presentation by Rick C. Wade, senior vice president of Strategic Alliances and Outreach at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
