Change Management

Change is the only thing that’s constant in life. The Grand Rapids Chamber’s Director of Inclusion, Andre Daley knows that and is working to implement change management strategies into the Chamber’s rich DEI programming.

On this episode of the Back to Business Podcast, host Connor Smithee had a chance to sit down with Andre to discuss this idea of change management, as well as the ever changing world of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. If you haven’t had a chance to meet Andre yet, this is a great way to get to know him and his plan for the Chamber’s Diversity & Inclusion work.

We also discussed the constantly evolving world of DEI, and Andre explains why in many spaces, the term EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) might soon replace DEI. You won’t want to miss this very informative episode with one of Grand Rapids’ top Diversity & Inclusion experts.


We want to hear what you think of the show! Feel free to email any comments, questions, or possible guests to Connor Smithee, Multimedia Marketing Specialist at
