CHAMBER CARES

 

Embracing a culture of service and inclusion

Chamber Cares, which embraces a culture of service and inclusion, creates a fulfilling and impactful community for employees to connect through volunteerism, internal connections, and partnerships.

MAKING AN IMPACT

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.

EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS

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.

By participating in the Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging group (DIBs), employees have opportunities to gather with, learn from, and support their colleagues. DIBs is open to all underrepresented groups and their allies.

OUR IMPACT
 

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.
