BRENTWOOD, CA — Today, the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce announced it is partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on a national initiative to address inequality of opportunity.
The Brentwood Chamber of Commerce will join the U.S. Chamber’s national townhall event on June 25 where business and community leaders will discuss concrete actions that can be taken by government and the private sector to address inequality through education, employment, entrepreneurship, and criminal justice reform. As a partner on this important initiative, the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce will host local and industry dialogues to further the discussion.
“The moral case for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace is indisputable, and there’s overwhelming evidence that greater diversity benefits the American economy, businesses, communities and employees,” said U.S. Chamber President Suzanne Clark. “We are proud to partner with Brentwood Chamber of Commerce on this initiative and help develop a robust plan of action.”
The work of this national initiative will build on the work already undertaken by the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce to increase diversity and inclusivity in our business community.
