Diversity & Inclusion Resource Summitt

The Aurora Chamber’s Diversity and Inclusion Council is hosting the first Diversity and Inclusion Resource Summit. The purpose of this summit is to benefit the community by providing local businesses with resources on how to diversify their business and to capture the growing population of Aurora and the Eastern Metro Area. We would also like businesses to learn about the importance of creating inclusion in the workplace with both employees and customers by introducing awareness on cultural competencies that can also positively increase your bottom line.

The first half of the Summit is a Resource Fair. Vendors have the opportunity to share resources that will help businesses diversify their products, services, workplace, or customers; create more inclusive work environments; or share marketing strategies to increase your business into different markets in the Eastern Metro Area.

Research has shown that when employees feel valued and included in the workplace their productivity increases.  The Summit will engage you in a relevant professional development opportunity, as your business is important to The Chamber and the community.

The second half of the summit is Resource Talks, where three businesses will have 15 minutes to discuss the following topics:

  • Importance of Marketing to diverse population.
  • Creating a welcoming and inclusive work environment that impacts the bottom line
  • Impact Story: “What you don’t know can hurt you” – understanding diversity and inclusive
  • HR policies and protecting your business.
