The Diversity & Inclusion Council of the Southeastern Chamber of Commerce was founded on June 16, 2015 with its first kickoff event, being held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in the heart of Historic Charleston, SC. The group launched 1 night before the Charleston 9 Massacre, where 9 innocent African Americans were murdered during a Bible Study service at their church, by a Caucasian male. The Chamber's CEO Henry Ravenel started forming the group and appointing leaders in March of 2015, after hearing the concerns of minority members of the Chamber and Charleston area business leaders that avowed the lack of diversity and inclusion. Mr. Ravenel traveled to different markets to access information regarding programs and services relating to Diversity & Inclusion, particularly in the workforce and executive development arena. Months later the Diversity & Inclusion Council of the Southeastern Chamber was developed and leaders that matched the skill-sets to facilitate the Council’s strategic plan; were appointed. Today the group continues to function progressively and consist of professionals from many different ethnicities and cultural perspectives.

The Vision of the council is to encourage, build and cultivate relationships in the business community for diversity and economic inclusion.

D& I Council Mission: The Southeastern Chamber‘s Diversity & Inclusion Council fosters creation development, sustainability, profitable and partnerships of successful individuals and business enterprises through diverse economic inclusion.
