      At the McKinney Chamber, we are guided by our mission to “Lead, Connect, and Empower our Stakeholders to Advance Business and Community Excellence”. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is critical to our work.

      Since 2019, the McKinney Chamber has been intentionally working to deepen our commitment to the work of DEI.
