At the U.S. Chamber, we have a strong belief that we exist to serve others—and that includes the communities in which we live and work.

Throughout the year, Chamber employees make an impact on the lives of others through volunteer opportunities. Current partnerships exist with local nonprofits like SOME, Miriam’s Kitchen, Operation Gratitude, the American Red Cross, the Capital Area Food Bank, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, A Wider Circle, Hands on DC, and Martha’s Table. Our signature employee event, A Week of Service, engages all employees in serving their local communities.

We support and empower employee resource groups (ERGs), which are open to all, so that like-minded employees can build stronger internal communities.

The Working Parents group supports all types of families through all phases of parenthood by providing resources, guidance, and encouragement from peers.

The Chamber Pride group promotes an inclusive community for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, and ally employees. Chamber Pride is a visible, accessible resource for employees who identify as LGBTQ+ and provides networking, educational, and social opportunities for LGBTQ+ employees and allies.

The Equality of Opportunity group serves as a resource to promote and embed a culture where employees feel valued and heard, regardless of race, creed, and ethnicity. The group empowers employees to promote diversity and equity by building an inclusive environment where everyone feels comfortable bringing their whole self to the organization.


The voice of business in Washington

American businesses serve people, solve problems, and save lives. They create jobs—and with them, opportunity, security, and prosperity—in communities across the country. This is hard work, with many uncertainties and obstacles, but America’s job creators get up and do it every day because they believe in the power of business to be a force for good in our society.

At the U.S. Chamber, we get up every day to help them do it. The government plays a role too. With the right decisions, our leaders help, rather than hinder, business-led growth. That’s why we fight for the policies we need to help businesses lead our economy out of the worst downturn since the Great Depression and fight against the crippling partisanship that stymies progress. Businesses need the right regulatory environment, trade agenda, legal system, workforce policies, and rules for the modern economy to drive the growth that will lift our country and help our people. Our job is to help them get it.
