Racial Equity Institute’s (REI’s) Groundwater Training

Join fellow Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) members on June 21 for a full-day event featuring Racial Equity Institute’s (REI’s) Groundwater Training and an afternoon of dialogue on racial bias and its effects on businesses. REI’s Groundwater Training is an introduction to racial equity using stories and data to present a perspective that racism is fundamentally structural in nature and that, as such, not everyone is benefiting from our region’s growth and prosperity. This training is part of a multiyear community-wide awareness-building campaign—led by Cleveland Neighborhood Progress—to increase our region’s shared understanding of the ties between racial equity and economic development. It is a follow up to the keynote address given by Tim Ryan, PricewaterhouseCoopers’ US chair, during the Commission on Economic Inclusion’s CEO Forum held in March 2018.

“Tim challenged us to aggressively seek ways within our organization to create forums for authentic, open dialogue around unique individual experiences,” said John G. Morikis, chair, president, and chief executive officer of the Sherwin-Williams Company, after attending the forum. “It also pushed us to think more about bias and ways to continue to educate our leaders.”
