The Chamber, in partnership with Access 2 Jobs, Asian Business Association, San Diego County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and other community orgs, celebrated this MLK Day and National Day of Service with a successful community business clinic attended by over eighty people. This was a great event where attendees were able to gain useful insight on how to grow their business in the new year, and network with others while doing so. The day began with a virtual breakfast panel that discussed strategies on how to accomplish diversity in the workplace, and had open discussion on challenges to doing so. Later, the event offered a series of workshops followed by a one-on-one speed networking session that allowed attendees the opportunity to connect with others for future collaboration.
In addition to our partners, the event could not have taken place without the help of the Chamber team; Community Manager Danielle Stephen, Administration Manager Tekly Berhe, Outreach Coordinator Mckenna O’Neill, and Communications Manager L.J. Maull. Elizabeth Cotton, Executive Director of the Chamber, remarked that the event, “Was an excellent start to the new year and a perfect way to honor the late Dr. King’s legacy. I thank all of our partners and the wonderful team at the Chamber for putting this together.”
