Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Supporting Inclusive Workplaces In Joplin

Prioritizing equity, diversity, and inclusion to strengthen the business community

Tasked with supporting businesses and the community-at-large in their efforts to understand and implement practices and policies that center equity, diversity, and inclusion. To achieve a significant transformation, this work group will build collaborative relationships in the business community through education, conversation, events and programs, with the ultimate goal of increasing awareness of best practices in equity, diversity, and inclusion and supporting actions that spur change. Businesses that prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion improve their bottom line, attract and retain top talent, and generate more innovative ideas.

The Chamber organized and deploys the business community through these work groups to improve livability. These work group are co-chaired by young professions from YPN, but are open to the entire chamber membership to join and serve.
