The Tampa Bay Chamber’s Minority Empowerment Program will run for another year, thanks to the local businesses sponsoring the program.
The sponsors include the founding sponsor of the program AT&T, as well as Amgen, Bank of America, Moffitt Cancer Center, Nielsen, Regions Bank and the Whiting Turning Contracting Company.
The Minority Empowerment Program provides one-year, top-tier chamber memberships to Black and Hispanic-owned businesses, and nonprofits, which are not already chamber members.
“We are proud to see our members, and our community as a whole, coming together in an impactful way to continue bringing positive change to Tampa Bay. We can’t wait to give a warm welcome to the new Black and Hispanic-owned businesses and non-profits that will be joining the Tampa Bay Chamber from this initiative in 2022, said Bob Rohrlack, president and chief executive officer of the Tampa Bay Chamber, in a statement.
The program participants will have a Chamber membership that runs through December 31, 2022.
