Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council Mission:
Diversity and inclusion are core values for the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce and it is critical that we incorporate these values into all aspects of our work including advocacy, communications, workplace environment, vendor selection, hiring, promotion and retention. In order to carry out the Chamber’s core values, the Diversity & Equity Inclusion Council will foster a shared culture at the Chamber that promotes the goals of accepting, respecting and valuing differences that include attributes such as age, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, sexual identity, ability, language, family circumstances and cultural backgrounds.
Tourism & Hospitality Council Mission
The mission of the Tourism and Hospitality Council is to engage and be a resource for local companies in the travel and tourism industry and businesses supporting the industry to achieve success. The council will support chamber members by providing educational opportunities with industry leaders and keeping them apprised of trends and issues affecting the industry.
