See What We Do

Commission 50

Members of the Commission 50 are recognized annually for progress in creating, enhancing and sustaining their diversity and inclusion strategies.

This recognition is based on their responses to the Commission on Economic Inclusion’s annual Employers Survey on Diversity™. Their scores are tabulated based on four metrics:

  • Board Diversity (corporate)
  • Senior Management Diversity (Northeast Ohio)
  • Workforce Diversity (Northeast Ohio)
  • Supplier Diversity (Northeast Ohio)

The organizations are ranked by each of the four metrics, and the rankings are combined to produce a final score. The 50 Commission-member organizations* with the highest combined scores receive this distinguished designation. See below for the list of 2015 honorees, which includes the Greater Cleveland Partnership.

*There was a tie score among the nonprofits resulting in 52 organizations receiving the 2015 designation.
