    Event Description:

    Join the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce for the inaugural United Strong: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit.

    The United Chamber recognizes that strength comes from diversity and unification.  Diverse perspectives, inclusion and equity are important and necessary for responsible and representative decision-making, talent development and fostering a pro-business climate for the well-being and vibrant future of Corpus Christi and the South Texas Region.

    Summit attendees can expect to be engaged in a necessary, beginning conversation on diversity, equity and inclusion throughout a series of sessions with speakers, panels, activities and networking breaks.  Topics of discussion will include: cross cultural issues; generational differences in the workplace; working with differently-abled populations; equity and gender inequality; cultural intelligence and why it matters; diversity, economics, disproportionality and disparity; and an inclusive future welcoming new Americans and international talent. 

    A briefing of the demographic and economic contributions of immigrants in Corpus Christi in 2016 will be provided and successful business owners who are immigrants will be highlighted.

    The summit is in partnership with Del Mar College Center for Economic Development.  Sponsors include Southwest Airlines, Del Mar Business Development Center, BBVA Compass Bank, and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
