Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Working Group

Our aim is to foster an inclusive environment where participants can openly discuss, explore, and share insights on DEI&B related policies, challenges, and best practices, as well as learn more about how diversity improves competitiveness.

At AmCham, we embrace diversity as a source of strength, promoting a culture of inclusion and equity.  Incorporating a diverse range of perspectives, skills, and backgrounds drives innovation, creativity, and adaptability. As a result, diversity emerges as a crucial asset that significantly enhances our country's competitiveness.

In 2024, we have established this platform for our Members to actively engage in meaningful conversations surrounding diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B).
