Commission on Economic Inclusion

The Commission on Economic Inclusion, a program of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, is focused on creating positive, measurable outcomes leading to:
  • Increases in board, senior management, workforce and supplier diversity among the more than 120 Northeast Ohio employers who are members of the Commission;

  • Increases in the total revenue, value, size, and number of employees for minority-owned businesses in our region and throughout the State of Ohio. Read more about the Commission’s member benefits and minority business resources.

There's still time to complete the D&I Assessment

The new online Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Assessment, which can be accessed at no cost by all Greater Cleveland Partnership members, is available through Friday, March 31.

Employers who complete the D&I Assessment will receive immediate feedback upon making their final submission, along with resources which can be useful for internal diversity and inclusion strategic planning.

The D&I Assessment and the associated resources can be helpful to any organization – whether they have an established D&I program in place, or they are looking for a place to start. We encourage you to take advantage of this great opportunity!

The first 10 organizations that complete the assessment for the first time this year will receive one free registration for the Commission’s annual Inclusion Conference in August—a $125 value.

Please contact Scott Harrington at sharrington@gcpartnership.com or 216.592.2213, if you have questions about the Assessment and/or are interested in completing it.
