About the Greater Cleveland Partnership Equity & Inclusion Division
The division has been working since 2001 to close the racial disparities in jobs, income, and wealth, by growing businesses owned by people of color and increasing workforce diversity, equity, and inclusion. Ultimately, this work is fueled by the belief that businesses and the region are stronger with greater racial equity. Acting as a convener, an advocate, and a resource, GCP's Equity & Inclusion engages the region’s employers to address the systemic racial inequalities which hinder economic growth in our region. Hundreds of professionals, top leaders, volunteers, businesses and community organizations are engaged with GCP's Equity & Inclusion each year to accomplish these goals.
