The Business Case for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Capital Region Chamber is committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce in our region. Beyond being the right thing to do, studies have shown that businesses and communities that are more diverse and inclusive are more innovative, have better employee engagement and experience a competitive advantage in the marketplace. By 2050, the U.S. stands to gain $8 trillion in GDP by closing the nation’s racial equity gap. Lessening and eliminating disparities for others benefits everyone (W.K. Kellogg Foundation).
