Create Great Inclusion

The Grand Rapids Chamber is working toward cultivating a community that is welcoming, diverse, and inclusive to all. 

In principle and practice, the Grand Rapids Chamber believes in the value and power of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Without diversity equity and inclusion, we limit our talent, resources, and the business opportunities necessary to thrive in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. In efforts to better serve and represent our membership, the Grand Rapids Chamber is committed to actively seeking a diverse, equitable/inclusive board, workforce, membership, business environment, and community.

We support these values through our policies, practices, membership services, and community engagement.

Whether it’s the diversity of race, gender, or sexual orientation, it is a key ingredient in adapting to the modern U.S. client base. To that end, it is no surprise that businesses that embrace diversity have a better standing in the marketplace rather than those who resist it.
