The Kentucky Chamber Foundation’s Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion serves as the conduit through which Kentucky businesses will build an inclusive and equitable Commonwealth. Through partnerships with employers of all sizes and guidance from civic, education, and non-profit leaders, the Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion aims to create deliberate, meaningful, and sustainable change to address the inequality that has long hindered Kentucky’s progress.



Kentucky Minority-Owned Business Database

To increase exposure for certified minority-owned businesses in Kentucky, help businesses looking to diversify their supply chain, expand the number of businesses utilizing the certification process, and provide resources for minority-owned businesses, the Kentucky Chamber Foundation Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has launched the Kentucky Minority-Owned Business Database. This is the first-ever platform in Kentucky that includes all certified minority-owned businesses in one place. Start using the Kentucky Minority-Owned Business Database today!
