The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber is dedicated to strengthening the communities of the Mahoning Valley's minority-, women-, veteran- and disability-owned businesses. 

We are committed to making Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion a priority for our region’s business community. By recognizing and utilizing our differences, we strive to create unrestricted, inclusive, and equitable access to economic opportunities for all of our businesses. It is important that we value each business’s qualities, and we are dedicated to building networks of opportunities that provide diverse businesses with available resources and support. 

We will promote inclusive growth through our practices, policies, membership services, and community engagement as we support our members and partners throughout the region. As part of our commitment to diversity, we seek to build an inclusive workforce and membership that reflects the diversified communities we serve. We are committed to ensuring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion across all levels of the organization, making sure we’re reaching the cultural spectrum for all positions, including our Board of Directors.

We present the following Small Business Resource Guide as a starting point to help entrepreneurs, startups and existing businesses with navigating through the myriad of resources available in our local area.  Service providers listed within this guide are dedicated to ensuring businesses have the resources needed to become sustainable and build our local economy.
