GCP Equity and Inclusion Assessment

The 2021 Equity & Inclusion Organization Assessment is OPEN

GCP Equity & Inclusion, a division of Greater Cleveland Partnership, works with Northeast Ohio employers committed to making the region’s diversity a source of economic strength. 

In a diverse environment such as Northeast Ohio, economic growth cannot be sustained without including a diverse workforce and utilizing minority businesses. 

For the past 19 years, Equity & Inclusion (formerly the Commission on Economic Inclusion) has collected data and reported the status of diversity and inclusion efforts in Northeast Ohio. All Greater Cleveland Partnership member companies and organizations are invited to participate in the process.
