ALTA Partners With U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Equality of Opportunity Initiative

July 21, 2020

ALTA is proud to announce it has partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Equality of Opportunity Initiative, which outlines a broad policy agenda in the areas of education, employment, entrepreneurship and criminal justice. 

“ALTA and its members are committed to hosting conversations and taking action in communities and the industry to address the inequality of opportunity across America,” said Diane Tomb, ALTA’s chief executive office. “Bridging opportunity gaps and ensuring that black Americans and people of color have a greater chance to succeed is the right thing to do. As an industry that values homeownership and fair housing for all, this is one step in ALTA’s journey to help achieve equality for all in America. We are proud to support this effort to advance equality and inclusion.”

More than 500 associations, as well as state and local chambers of commerce have joined this effort. 

“As our nation undertakes a necessary conversation about systemic racism, we will listen thoughtfully and lead solutions to help ensure black Americans and people of color have greater opportunities to succeed in the American enterprise system,” said Suzanne P. Clark, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “We know what a job means to an individual, to a family and to a community. It means personal dignity, financial security, better health outcomes, opportunities to advance and grow, and hope for the future.”
