Vancouver, WA - The Greater Vancouver Chamber (GVC) proudly embarks on its third annual Inclusion and Diversity Assessment Survey, documenting the ongoing efforts of our communities to create more welcoming and inclusive work environments. Recognizing the critical role diversity plays in fostering a thriving economy, the GVC invites organizations across the southwest Washington region to contribute to this transformative initiative.

"At the Greater Vancouver Chamber, we understand the power of diversity in shaping a vibrant economy. Our annual Inclusion and Diversity Assessment Survey is a call to action, urging organizations of all sizes to share their insights and experiences with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices," said GVC President & CEO John McDonagh. 

We invite everyone, from newcomers to seasoned professionals, supervisors to CEOs, to share their valuable insights and experiences regarding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices. Your input will play a crucial role in tracking the progress of the transformative efforts that are shaping the workforce culture throughout southwest Washington. Participants also have the option to remain anonymous, ensuring candid and open responses.

Southwest Washington boasts a diverse business landscape, ranging from micro-enterprises to mid-size companies and multi-national corporations. Conversations surrounding diversity in the workplace, equitable employment practices, and the creation of inclusive environments for customers and clients are ongoing. 

"The survey is designed to be a quick and impactful way for organizations to contribute to the DEI dialogue. The goal is to identify where there is progress and where more work and resources are needed. By participating, you're actively shaping the future of our business community," added McDonagh. 

The survey will remain open until Friday, December 29th, and takes only a few minutes to complete. The results will contribute to the baseline guiding GVC's resources and offerings over the next three to five years. Subsequently, on an annual basis, the Chamber will re-survey the market, quantifying progress toward making Clark County and southwest Washington a more inclusive and welcoming business community.
