A Message from DEI Task Force Chair
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Force was born out of an identifiable need to create professional equity for all businesses across the Space Coast. What started as a conversation amongst a few partners and staff of the Melbourne Regional Chamber to create a space where individuals and organizations could be comfortable discussing topics and issues associated with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the workplace grew into a task force with intentional objectives.
The Melbourne Regional Chamber’s DEI Task Force exists to be a facilitator and connector of the best resources for businesses to utilize when seeking to understand diversity, equity, and inclusion. The task force will work to educate and implement best practices on the Space Coast to enable businesses, residents, and visitors to feel respected, honored, acknowledged, and understood.
We are a community of business leaders, business owners, and professionals with diverse backgrounds who will lead by example to create awareness and an environment that empowers positive change.
I am proud to serve as Chair of the Melbourne Regional Chamber’s DEI Task Force and look forward to leading the effort in fostering tangible results of its impact in our community with the help of our community.
I encourage you to attend events hosted or promoted by the DEI Task Force to further understand what’s needed to create and maintain a workplace conducive to professional equity. I encourage organizations to support the DEI Task Force by becoming a sponsor and or committing to cultivating a fair and equitable working environment that is diverse.
We look forward to helping grow businesses in the Space Coast in ways that include the growth of all.
