Advocacy, education, and connection were all worked on this week and all produced some incredible results.
ADVOCATE - We had a very active week at the State Legislature with bills being heard, and conversations with legislators being had about the issues with discriminatory bills. Good progress was made and we are ready to do it again next week and are hopeful for some positive results.
EDUCATE - Our first in-person Classroom Connect was held at the Entrepreneur Center on Thursday. The Grow With Google topic of "Making your Website Work for You" was taught by our incredible members Tolbert Marketing & Events. A big thank you to them, I learned so much and I bet you will too, watch the video and find out.
CONNECT - We hosted an incredible program with Music City Baseball/Nashville Stars on Wednesday. The event touched on Black and LGBT history, coming out stories, inclusion and acceptance in business and in sports, and powerful and emotional stories of being your true self and having someone to look up to. It was one of my favorite events we have done and I hope you will watch the video of the program below. Then I highly recommended reading the book “Singled Out” by Andrew Maraniss.
Thank you to all that made the week so successful, and thank you to all the members of the Chamber.
