Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Central Virginia Partnership for Economic Development embraces diversity, equity and inclusion.

Through our dedication to these values, we create an environment that increases creativity, promotes high-quality decisions and fosters economic growth. We are committed to cultivating welcoming workplaces where employees’ and members’ perspectives are valued and respected. The Partnership encourages all companies and organizations currently doing business in our region, or are seeking to, to join us in embracing these values.

Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion effort is ever-evolving just like the society we inhabit. Our Board’s Diversity Task Force is advised by the University of Virginia Vice President for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Community Partnerships, Dr. Kevin McDonald, and continues to work on this important issue.

To get involved and learn more about DEI in our region, visit Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce Minority Business Alliance or Black Cville.
