Increasing the Bottom Line Through Inclusive Culture

We were pleased to have Latonya Brock, executive director of the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce speak with our Adams County Works Transition Planning team, along with other community leaders on Increasing the Bottom Line Through Inclusive Culture.

The lunchtime seminar took place on Wednesday, June 24 via zoom with nearly 30 attendees. Latonya was hired as the Executive Director of the Chamber in September 2017.  She was originally hired as the Chamber’s Membership Manager in February 2016.  Latonya moved here from Indianapolis, IN. Prior to Chamber work, she was in the financial industry for 22 years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies from Indiana Wesleyan University.  She is married to Jebora Brock. Together the couple has one adult son, two adult daughters, a teenage son, and seven grandchildren.

Latonya has been a leader of Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace and helps lead the Chamber Diversity & Inclusion committee, which serves as a subgroup within the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce that was formed to create awareness within our community as it relates to being diverse and inclusive.  The objective of the group is for businesses and organizations to look for ways or form actionable steps to embrace D&I and to leverage the strengths of all employees within their influence.
