GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
There is a new vision in the works for the Upstate Business Community, one that's more diverse.
The Greenville Chamber launched its Diversity and Inclusion Initiative.
The goal is to improve Greenville's economy and per capita personal income by making sure everyone has a seat at the business negotiating table.
"It is to ensure that we are being as inclusive as we can so we are identifying several ways to identify with the community which include the minority business community. This is the start of an overarching strategy," said Nika White, the newly appointed vice president of Diversity and Inclusion with the Greenville Chamber.
If you're interested in getting involved, just contact the Greenville Chamber at 864-242-1050.
