The Capital Region's Moral and Economic Imperative
As the 3rd largest regional economy in the USA and the 7th largest in the world, we have the diverse talent, jobs, transportation, and innovation ecosystem needed to thrive.
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. Explore our Inclusive Growth Dashboard to learn more about the current state of equity and inclusion in the region.
