Name: Beyond Black & White: Small Business Diversity
Date: November 30, 2017
Time: 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM CST
Event Description:

Diversifying your workforce in a small business can be challenging. Nevertheless, small business leaders can and should work to foster healthy, diverse and inclusive work environments. Diversity isn’t only about race. It is about all the ways people are the same and unique and includes cognitive diversity, work styles, family status, ability, military status, age and beyond. A diverse workforce leads to innovation and expands communication. Small business leaders must think outside of the box to find ways to become more diverse and inclusive, so they can reap benefits and make effective decisions.

What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

  • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.

  • The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has been an excellent resource for my small business. The Chamber provides multiple channels for business awareness, networking opportunities and helpful educational programs. Being a member of the Chamber has really made a difference in helping expand my business visibility, growth and development in Dane County.
