Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce is committed to educating, leading, and influencing businesses in creating diverse and inclusive workforce cultures to enhance their competitive advantage. The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce respects the evolving diversity of our county and embraces this strength.  The Chamber understands that diversity fosters innovation and creativity in our businesses thereby increasing performance. Only by learning and engaging with people and organizations that support this spectrum of diversity can we together make the Chamber, our members, and community stronger.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When leadership reflects diversity and inclusion, we create a welcoming environment where we are viewed as an open and accepting organization.  Consideration is given when populating all levels of leadership and staff within the Fort Bend Chamber including Chamber Partners, Board of Directors, Division Chairs and Officers.

The Fort Bend Chamber created a Diversity Action Team (DAT);  members who commit to serving six-month terms to assist in building relationships throughout our community.  This is accomplished through the introductions of individuals to events and meetings to discuss opportunities and referrals.  Our success is defined by the number of new and meaningful relationships we built.

Our approach to diversity and inclusion aligns with our mission as the advocate for business excellence in Fort Bend County.   Embracing diversity in thought, background and action fosters innovation and competition and has been shown to increase business performance and employee satisfaction over time.  We encourage all our members to establish diversity and inclusion systems and practices.

We regularly reach out to other organizations to find common ground in our mission and objectives.
