Columbus Chamber | Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Access

Our Central Ohio community is vibrant! Central Ohio businesses should reflect that rich diversity. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in business is right for our society and good for our economy.

The Columbus Chamber is stronger when we embrace the power of our member businesses’ diversity. We are at a critical juncture in our history, where there is a clear recognition & mandate for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Access (DEI&A) across our communities.

  • Diversity – seeking to ensure a range of people with various racial, ethnic, gender, socio-economic, cultural, sexual orientation, age, lifestyle, access, experience, and interest backgrounds are represented across our Chamber and community
  • Equity – seeking to ensure fair treatment, regardless of race, equality of opportunity, and fairness in access to resources and information to all
  • Inclusion – seeking to build a culture of belonging by actively inviting contribution and participation
  • Access – seeking to expand access to work with business, community, government leaders, and others to create multifaceted value in the way employers evolve in how they leverage diversity, instill equity, lead with an inclusive lens

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, an initiative of the Columbus Chamber, is committed to championing DE&I as a priority within the Columbus business community and provide additional support to our members & stakeholders.
