Mission

The Morrisville Chamber of Commerce is committed to furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in our community. As a business affiliate and advocate, we want to celebrate members who are culturally inclusive in their workplace and be a resource to improve others. We have created new events to showcase the importance of these efforts and we are committed to continually providing resources for our members and community through this toolkit.

Organizations and institutions across the country are quickly realizing that diversity cannot be the end goal. Instead, we must develop safe, open, and inclusive environments for all to collaborate and co-exist. The Power of Inclusion Series highlights a specific topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion on a deeper level, giving business and community leaders additional resources to be inclusive in their everyday lives.

From Our Partners at the Diversity Movement

COVID-19, racial injustice, war in Ukraine, transitioning back to in-office work… The last two years have been full of change, sorrow, and uncertainty. It’s no surprise that mental health issues have become increasingly common as people face ongoing challenges. In fact, a recent report from Indeed found that 52% of all workers feel burned out, with even higher numbers for those in Human Resources, in frontline positions, and in leadership. As individuals and organizations, we can take steps to improve mental health and wellness leading to greater agility, productivity, collaboration, and innovation.

From our Partners at The Diversity Movement

Diversity within an organization promotes increased revenue, greater innovation, more productivity, better retention, and higher employee satisfaction overall. Most businesses are trying, but most businesses are failing at the achievement of diversity, equity and inclusion within their organization.
