The Cultural Diversity Network of Steele County promotes appreciation of cultural diversity by the sharing of customs, food, music and art among the residents in the community. We promote awareness and pride in cultural diversity. The Cultural Diversity Network partners with individuals and agencies in order to meet basic survival needs of all people. We provide refugee and resettlement assistance for people in need. The assistance does help assist with acquiring basic goods and services needed to resettle in a new life. Presentations are given to civic groups, schools, businesses, churches, and other interested citizens who wish to know more about welcoming newcomers from other cultures.
Our Chamber has approximately 530 members that invest their resources, employee volunteerism and confidence in the Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism and the business community.
