Greater Rochester is a diverse community, and that diversity is our strength.
Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce is committed to creating an economy that is built on the ingenuity, intelligence, and involvement of all of its residents – not just some. In order to reach our maximum potential, we must ensure that every person in our community has unimpeded access to economic opportunities.
Through the adoption of inclusive practices and equitable policies, we can establish a 21st century economy where organizational equity produces diversity at every level, and equality of opportunity for all is a defining feature. The Colors of Success Awards are presented to an individual and organization that have demonstrated exemplary leadership in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the greater Rochester community with clear positive impacts as a result of these efforts. This award is our highest recognition for achievement related to DEI and is awarded annually.
