Florida Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Project
Facilitating the necessary conversations, best practices, and changes in the Florida workplace.
About the Florida Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Project
Words like diversity, equity, and inclusion have become common place in the new world, but businesses still struggle with the true meaning every day. How do we ensure our business embraces diversity? Are we inclusive of all voices? What does equity look like in a healthy organization? Understanding that businesses are looking to embrace these changes, but some struggle with the “how,” the Florida Chamber Foundation launched the Florida Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Project as part of the Florida Equality of Opportunity Initiative.
Overseen by our expert Advisory Council, made up of the nation’s top corporate diversity, equity, and inclusion officers, the Florida Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Project is setting out to create a medium for businesses to access resources, learn best practices, and build implementation strategies in their communities and organizations. With the leadership of the business community, Florida will not just be viewed as a land of promise, but as the land of opportunity for all.
To help businesses access the necessary tools to effect change in their organizations and communities, the Florida Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Project will:
Work with the nation’s top diversity, equity, and inclusion officers to understand the landscape of inequality in the workplace and the solutions that are driving real change.
Leverage the Florida Chamber of Commerce’s network to promote the leading corporate strategies and programs tackling the issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Package our Advisory Council’s recommendations, best practices, and resources into a toolkit accessible to Florida businesses, regardless of size, for implementation in the workplace.
Together, we can champion equality opportunity for all in the workplace and turn the nation’s best practices into Florida’s standard practices.
