Event Description:
Partnering with Just Communities of Arkansas,  The Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce has produced CRAFT (Community Retention and Attraction of Future Talent); programming around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

This innovative and trans-formative program is a key stone of the Chamber’s equity-driven economic growth and diverse talent initiatives and will provide participants a continuous learning experience that goes deep into understanding about DEI issues and best workplace practices while developing inclusive leadership skills and fostering a welcoming, engaging quality of life for Bentonville-area young professionals. 

This four part CRAFT session will be geared towards emerging professionals only; sessions for those leading our economy and community for the decades to come will be presented during the lunchtime hour. 

Although not required; we ask that participants make every effort to join all four sessions; form an organic cohort and build shared experiences to strengthen relationships and collective focus for future projects. 
Look forward to getting acquainted on a deeper level of self and acknowledging the light in others.
