The Capital Region is lagging other large cities and cross-jurisdictional regions nationwide when it comes to racial inclusion and geographic prosperity, and there is a lot of work to be done. Inclusive growth should be at the forefront of business decisions for every company across the Capital Region. This can only be done by breaking down long-term barriers to economic opportunity and then measuring impact to advance inclusive growth.
Moving forward, the Inclusive Growth initiative will focus on:
- Support Small and Medium-Sized Businesses
- Support Diverse Innovation Ecosystems
- Foster Better Employment Outcomes for Black & LatinX workforce
- Address Long-term Systemic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Organizational Barriers
