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 we aim to be a resource to help others improve. The Power of Inclusion and KNOW events showcase the importance of these efforts and we are committed to continually providing resources for our members and community.
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.

Creating an inclusive workplace during the holidays helps fosters a sense of belonging and unity among employees, creating a productive work culture. Several resources, such as those from the ASAE Center, offer valuable insights on how to celebrate diversity and promote inclusivity in a variety of ways, especially around the holidays. These approaches emphasize embracing traditions and customs from various backgrounds while also introducing new, inclusive traditions that can be shared by all. By encouraging open conversations about cultural celebrations and acknowledging the diversity of beliefs and practices within the workplace, employers can facilitate a warm and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and respected. This thoughtful and inclusive approach during the holiday season contributes to a harmonious workplace that exemplifies the principles of unity, acceptance, and respect.
By making a commitment and signing the Morrisville Chamber of Commerce DEI pledge you will show that you are an ally in creating a diverse, inclusive, and safe space for all people in the community and will be accountable throughout the year with quarterly check-ins and educational programming.
