The Apopka area is more diverse than you think! According to the U.S. Census Bureau, our community is 43 percent Caucasian, 28 percent Hispanic and 24 percent African-American. That's significant. If you do not understand the rich tapestry of diverse communities and people in the Apopka area your business will be missing significant opportunities.
Over the past few months, your Chamber has been working to find ways to help your business and our community. A group of volunteers formed the Diversity & Inclusion Committee, and they developed one of the first initiatives in our chamber to significantly build bridges and understanding between the populations of residents that make up the Apopka area.
Starting on April 22, we launched a new series to help businesses become more diverse and culturally-astute. Led by Apopka Chamber member, Small World Solutions, this five-part series will be essential for the future of your company.
The series includes:
Introduction and Background to Diversity and Inclusion Aspects
Strategic Planning for Addressing D and I Aspects
Opportunities and Aspirations
Results tied into the Grand Statement
The five-part series is valued at more than $1,300 if you were to bring this to your organization. Space is limited. RSVP today.
