AmCham's new vice chairman Diana David points out in a recent LinkedIn post that while three-quarters of start-up founders say they feel diversity is important, only one in ten are taking action to bring it about, according to a report by Techstars.

"There's a lot of chat, both positive and negative, about diversity in start-ups. In the aftermath of scandals, what can start-ups do to revamp their hiring process to improve diversity and inclusion at their firms?" she asks. In her post she adds a few resources available to employers to help turn affirmative thought into affirmative action.

Their are 11 women sitting on AmCham's 2019 board of governors – at just over 40 percent, that's more than double the representation ten years ago. Getting there.
