Diversity & Inclusion Summit

A Strategic Priority for Business Success & Community Prosperity


Viewing diversity and inclusion as a leadership function is vital for professional and personal development. The Greenville Chamber has created a diversity and inclusion leadership conference that encourages participants to bring it, share it, discover it, challenge it and embrace it. We want you to have conversations and dialogue that will push you to action. Years of experience have taught us that a diverse, inclusive workplace and society doesn’t just happen. Yet, as we look to the future of our marketplace and workforce, we recognize that huge demographic shifts are happening that impact our business model and require a new way of conducting business and ensuring community prosperity.

Enrich your life and your business by taking advantage of this opportunity to hone your skills as an authentic, intentional diversity leader.
