Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Moving Past Representation and Towards Inclusive Workplace Environments

Events of recent years shook the Bay Area and the United States to the core and exposed some of the inequities that communities of color, women and other marginalized communities continue to face today. 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.


2023 Goals

Goal 1: Create a more equitable Bay Area by supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts within companies.

Goal 2: Drive policy change at the local, regional, and state level to advance equity priorities, including getting women back into the workforce.
