Statement on social injustices:
The Westerville Area Chamber is driven by our mission and uphold our values through our daily efforts of: Advocate, Inspiration, Collaboration, Inclusion and Innovate and Tradition.
We believe in supporting and promoting all the employees and businesses equally. Our business community does not tolerate violence and harassment toward others. We strive for diversity among the leadership of the Chamber to broaden our thoughts and perspectives in representing the business community. The WACC will use its role as a convener along with the collective power of the businesses to keep the lines of communication open, encourage participation to drive economic prosperity and to demand more from ourselves and our nation.
We commit to working with our community partners to assure we have systemic change throughout our society. We ask greater Westerville businesses and employees to ensure that everyone’s rights are respected- no matter their race, ethnicity or national origin. We encourage thoughtful reflection and cooperation on a more equitable future for greater Westerville. It requires us to engage in conversations about race and speaking up when we see injustices.
