Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Moving Past Representation and Towards Inclusive Workplace Environments

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee is working to develop recommendations and best practices to further mobilize the business community in support of the fight towards racial and gender equity. The Committee works with civic and political leaders to promote and enhance workplace cultures of equity, inclusion and belonging.

2024 Priorities

  • Promote Bay Area Council Economic Institute report examining wage inequity in the Bay Area and highlighting how various strategies can help deliver massive regional economic gains.
  • Convene quarterly meetings with regional chief diversity officers to promote cross pollination, align regional interests, foster collective action, and advance equity across sectors.
  • Launch a new professional’s network focused on expanding and elevating opportunities for diverse leaders.
  • Launch a women’s empowerment series to foster candid discussions about how women can assert their strength in the workplace and leadership roles.
