Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our community is dynamic and ever-changing – thanks to the contributions of our colorful and diverse business community. Our Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion serves as a hub for NWA. As our community and economy march forward together, championing our female, LGBTQ+, people of color, and people with disabilities is paramount to the success of small businesses in Bentonville; and that’s why our staff has dedicated themselves to continued education and development of programming that supports all – because all means ALL.

Bentonville boasts one of the most dynamic communities and economies in the country.  As we position for the growth of a 21st Century Economy, we work to build a 21st Century Community. This work embodies Bentonville’s commitment to economic opportunity for all and intentionality towards access to resources for entrepreneurs from underrepresented minorities.
