How we add value to your GCP membership

The Greater Cleveland Partnership offers a diverse range of services, expertise and connections to help our region’s companies grow, expand and thrive. The Commission on Economic Inclusion, a program of the GCP, is one of those resources.

As a member of the Commission, your company has access to a wide range of diversity and inclusion services and resources that can be tailored to support your company’s strategic objectives.

Whether broadening the labor pool to access the best talent, enhancing service and relationships with a diverse, global customer base, or maximizing innovation and creative team problem solving, the Commission is focused on strengthening its members’ economic competitiveness.

And, as a GCP member, there is no additional cost to become a Commission member.
