Equity & Inclusion Task Force
Building Equity in Our Business Communities.
The creation of the Equity Task Force, is the result of discussions among chamber members about racial inequity, in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020.
We recognize that we, as business leaders in our communities, must be a part of working towards an anti-racist society, that dismantles systematic racism, so that our mission, as the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce, can truly support and welcome all members of our communities, no matter one’s identity.
Diversity, equity and inclusion is good for business, and it is our goal to work towards a more diverse, vibrant, and inclusive community, which celebrates diversity.
