The Greater Washington Partnership is committed to catalyzing solutions that make the region from Baltimore to Richmond more equitable and inclusive. We are an action-oriented alliance of the region’s top employers, focused on an interconnected set of critical issues that together will drive inclusive growth and make ours the most equitable economy in the nation. We leverage the capability, resources, and influence of our Board Partners to collaborate across sectors, geographies, and jurisdictions in order to help more people — particularly those who too often get left behind.
