The Hampton Roads Chamber is laser-focused on diversity for 2018. We’ve already hosted an inaugural diversity forum and had a successful start to the 2018 Glass series, which focuses on women in business.
The diversity forum featured remarks by three of the leading black politicians in Virginia. Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is only the second African American elected to statewide office. Congressman Bobby Scott is the first African American elected to Congress since Reconstruction and Mayor Kenneth Alexander is the first black mayor in Norfolk’s history.
