Black History Month

In 2021, the Whitby Chamber of Commerce (WCC) hosted its inaugural Black History Month event, Growth, Promise & Beyond. Through this event, the WCC hoped to inspire growth within itself and the business community, as well as continue the conversation through the month of February and beyond.

The 2024 theme was Purpose & Possibilities! Our outstanding speakers and panelists reimagined our history, by creating a new identity built upon hope, achievement, contribution and success and served as a power of example for others in our business community and beyond. We embarked on this journey from a place of collaboration, unity and trust, and acknowledged the opulence, achievements and rich contributions of Black community business members. 

It was truly an opportunity for all of us, regardless of cultural background to collaborate, share, learn and grow.
