    To advance and foster an environment for diverse business owners and professionals to grow and foster productive business relationships. The focus is through promoting inclusiveness among all businesses and to grow, and foster, relationships between businesses of multi (diverse) cultures and government.


    The Council's efforts will be in recruiting and retaining business owners, developers, investors and professionals of diverse cultures to the greater Westerville area and the Chamber. They will also increase diverse representation among the Chamber’s Board of Trustees and influence diverse representation among community boards and city/township boards and commissions.


    It is a great honor to Chair, The Business Inclusion and Opportunities Council. It represents a great initiative of the Westerville Area Chamber. I am humbled to be working with Janet Tressler-Davis, the president of the Chamber, the Vice Chair of the council, Dr. Coutanya Coombs and other members. It is a first of its kind initiative that brings together black entrepreneurs and professionals in and around Westerville by helping to build business relationships and an environment that will foster creativity, innovation and growth. Our hope is that this initiative will create a positive and sustainable effect on the economy of Westerville and the Columbus Metropolis. The Council also believes that the inclusiveness that's been nurtured, sends a message to aspiring minority businesses that Westerville is a great place to do business.
