Chamber’s Building Bridges event to be held virtually on Oct. 19
The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce kicked off its nine-month Leadership Florence Class of 2021 with a leadership retreat on Sept. 29 at the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology. Leadership Florence is a comprehensive nine-month program designed to identify, cultivate and motivate new leadership for the Greater Florence area.

Dr. Louis Venters of Francis Marion University is among those scheduled to offer remarks during the 2020 Building Bridges Leadership and Diversity Summit, which will be held virtually Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The annual event is sponsored by the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce. 

The program will open with a speech from former S.C. Sen. Maggie Glover. Venters and other speakers will offer remarks and a panel discussion titled, “Women Breaking Barriers to Success,” will follow. 

The keynote presentation will be followed by interactive panel discussions on workplace diversity, community diversity, cultural competence as well as faith and values. 

The cost is $25. Spaces are limited. To register, visit www.flochamber.com. A login link will be sent to participants prior to the event. 

The community is encouraged to attend, along with other business and community leaders. 

The mission of Building Bridges is to enable our community to address diversity issues through a continuing process of changing attitudes and hearts through education and conscious-raising. 

For further information, contact the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce office at (843) 665-0515.
