The Center for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

In response to our increasing awareness of ongoing inequity in our Black, Brown, and other historically underserved communities, the Kentucky Chamber Foundation has launched the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The Center for DE&I, in partnership with Kentucky business, civic, and education leaders, will work on systemic transformation with an explicit focus on criminal justice, economic empowerment, education equity, and inclusive business practices to build a stronger and more united future where all Kentuckians can grow and thrive.
