View Now: Racial Justice and Economic Equity Progress ReportFebruary 2, 2022
After George Floyd’s murder in 2020 sparked a nationwide racial reckoning, the Detroit Regional Chamber recognized the need to improve its diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work and play a more dynamic role in creating lasting, systemic change. This led to the creation of its Racial Justice and Economic Equity initiative. As an organization, the Chamber took this charge to leverage its position as a convener of business to ensure pervasive and long-term change both societally and economically. This ongoing work is rooted in a reflective focus on accountability as an organization and enduring commitment to ensuring the region’s equitable future.
Below is a progress report that documents the Chamber’s ongoing work from Summer 2020 to Fall 2021.
