The South Tampa Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on the Equality of Opportunity Initiative.
All Americans should have the opportunity to earn their success, rise on their own merit and live their own American Dream. But far too often, the opportunity to obtain an education, secure a job, start a business, and provide for your family is determined by the color of your skin. These systemic inequalities hurt individuals, communities, our economy, and our society.
Join us Thursday, June 25th for the National Summit on Equality of Opportunity, where leaders from across the private and public sectors will discuss solutions to some of the underlying challenges driving inequality of opportunity for Black Americans in four critical areas: education, employment, entrepreneurship, and the criminal justice system.
This historic virtual event kicks off the Equality of Opportunity Initiative, through which the U.S. Chamber has partnered with nearly 500 chambers and associations across the country to pursue policy and private sector solutions to bridge underlying racial divides that contribute to broader, systemic inequalities in our society.
We are honored to be joined by CBS's Gayle King, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, W.K. Kellogg Foundation's Joel Wittenberg, PwC's Tim Ryan, Mayor Steve Benjamin (Columbia, SC), Howard University President Wayne A. I. Frederick, and many more.
