ETHOS

Launched in June 2020, Chez Nous Guide is a Black and woman-owned resource for finding and supporting inclusive, ethical, socially-conscious, and sustainable companies and organizations.

The site is dedicated to amplifying business and organizations run by historically-marginalized people around the world: Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Women, and the LGBTQIA+ community. As of April 2021, the site has expanded to include eco-friendly and sustainable business and organizations.

Our focus is making diversity and inclusion not just a buzzword but a way of life—from helping consumers make conscious decisions to empowering minority founders with tools and resources to succeed through our in-house marketing and branding agency, Chez Nous Studio.

We are all family—working together to make the world a more inclusive and sustainable place. Bienvenue à Chez Nous (welcome to our home).
