Principles of Community and Inclusion
Statement on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Top of Virginia Regional Chamber is committed to providing a respectful, understanding and welcoming environment for all employees, members and the broader local community we serve.
We value the diversity of perspectives throughout our organization and within the variety of industries we represent, and we encourage the thoughtful expression of opinions and ideas on the basis of civility and sensitivity.
We do not discriminate on the basis of age, color, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, physical or mental disability, political affiliation, pregnancy, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status or on any other basis protected under applicable law.
We commit to exploring the important issues of diversity, equity and inclusion, and will utilize the avenues of education and training to increase our understanding in each of these areas.
Our purpose of connecting business and community resources for mutual success extends to all local citizens, and we pledge to do all we can to ensure inclusivity in all its forms.
