Equity Resources

Equity Resources

As issues surrounding advancing racial equity take center stage in the national conversation, we at the Chamber are committed to being part of the solution. We’re working on a number of initiatives both inside our organization and as part of the greater Greensboro community.

  1. We are compiling resources on this page to help educate our community about systemic racism and the experiences of Black individuals. If you know of a resource that is not listed, please email hwest@greensboro.org.
  2. In partnership with several businesses, community organizations and faith groups, we launched the #GSOAgainstRacism pledge.
  3. In summer 2020, we worked with the Greensboro Public Library on the One City, One Film initiative to kickstart a community conversation using the movie “The Hate U Give.” We are in the process of planning a similar event for 2021.
  4. An internal committee is leading ongoing diversity and inclusion training for Chamber employees.
  5. We are working with local and state governmental officials on direct policy solutions for our community.

#GSOAgainstRacism

In summer 2020, we partnered with several businesses, community organizations and faith groups on the #GSOAgainstRacism campaign. We cannot stand by silently while, across our country and right here at home, people continue to be targeted and endangered based on their skin color.

Thank you to the hundreds of community members who took a stand!

One City, One Film

On July 21-23, 2020, we partnered with the Greensboro Public Library to facilitate a dialogue about Black experiences, starting with encouraging our fellow citizens to watch the movie “The Hate U Give,” or to read the book it’s based on. This gave us all a common language and starting point for talking about inequality in our community.

A second One City, One Film project is in the works for 2021. Updates will be posted on the One City, One Film page and our social media accounts.
