The Allegany County Chamber of Commerce supports diversity and the inclusivity of all members, residents, visitors, and guests. We are dedicated to creating and sustaining an inclusive environment and condemn all forms and acts of hatred, prejudice, and discrimination. We affirm that diversity enriches our lives and organizations and that our full potential is realized when inclusion and equality are the standards.
Inclusion requires community cooperation, which includes businesses, institutions, government agencies, nonprofits, neighborhood organizations, and civic leaders to take proactive steps to identify and remove biases. As an organization, we are committed to collaboration, and using our platform and our voices to influence change through education, training, understanding, and open dialogue. We will work toward meaningful change to promote equality, unity, and inclusivity for the future through our actions and not just our words.
