Tampa Bay Chamber’s Minority Empowerment Program to continue for second year

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.

The businesses selected to go through the Minority Empowerment Program for 2022 include:

  • Optional Solutions
  • Pierson Property Group
  • Aptos Screening
  • Caz Hodge Marketing
  • Skilled Workforce Talent Solutions
  • Swoll Camp
  • Empowering Creative
  • Wise Walk Virtual Solutions
  • Samamed Home Improvements
  • Mesubi
