A Community Culture Index For Employers In Chattanooga

Diverse hands

How are businesses and nonprofits here in Chattanooga fulfilling their commitments to be more diverse and more inclusive in their employment practices?

The Community Culture Index aims to quantify the answer - one of the first data-driven efforts of its kind for a city of this size, and a potential model for other cities around the country.

Wade Hinton is founder and CEO of Hinton and Company, which launched the index in partnership with the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga.
