The Chamber’s 100-year history can be summed up as the activation, incubation and acceleration of transformational community programs and initiatives. These priorities will help establish the foundation for the Chamber’s future legacy:
Advance a multi-faceted plan to address urgent educational and workforce demands of the aerospace industry and other advanced manufacturing.
Diversity and Inclusion
Champion the competitive advantage of having a diverse and inclusive business climate.
Identify and activate a committee to assist with small business engagement in inclusion, policy, talent and quality of place activities.
Quality of Place
Advocate for a transformation of the convention center, performing arts center and riverfront as part of a bold vision for Wichita’s future.
“I’m passionate about providing more visibility and resources to the under-represented entrepreneurs in this community. I appreciate the Chamber’s support of the region’s entrepreneurs and its emphasis on intentional inclusion.”
