U.S. Chamber of Commerce National Summit on Equality of Opportunity
We invite you to join us on the afternoon of Thursday, June 25 for our National Summit on Equality of Opportunity, where leaders from across the private and public sectors will discuss solutions to some of the underlying challenges driving inequality of opportunity for Black Americans in four critical areas: education, employment, entrepreneurship, and the criminal justice system.
All Americans should have the opportunity to earn their success, rise on their own merit, and live their own American Dream. But far too often, the opportunity to obtain an education, secure a job, start a business, and provide for your family is determined by the color of your skin. These systemic inequalities hurt individuals, communities, our economy, and our society. This historic virtual event kicks off the Equality of Opportunity Initiative, through which the U.S. Chamber has partnered with more than 500 chambers and associations across the country to pursue policy and private sector solutions to bridge underlying racial divides that contribute to broader, systemic inequalities in our society.
