Equity

In the summer of 2021, the Chamber received a Member Advocacy Issue submission that asked, “What is the Chamber doing to support the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts in the community?” We realized this was a gap in the Chamber culture that needed to be focused on, and our Chamber Board created the Equity Committee.

We recognize that diversity, equity, and inclusion is becoming an increasingly valued part of the workplace conversation and we are proactively partnering with the City of Fort Myers, Lee County, and the FutureMakers Coalition on our work. The Chamber’s Equity Committee meets on the first Friday of each month at 8:00AM and all are welcome. If you are ready for frank conversation about equity, join us and be part of where we are going.

Chair: Jason Teeters, Collaboratory
