To support and encourage efforts by all employers to hire, retain, and promote more people of color and continue to collaborate more intentionally with private, public and nonprofit partners to close racial disparities in the metropolitan area.
A city where everyone can thrive economically and where race will no longer predict individuals' level of educational attainment, likelihood of going to prison, life expectancy, income or employment status.

We will recognize that institutional racism is a crucial issue in employment disparities and educate the community accordingly. Our efforts will be intentional and effective in generating fair impacts and outcomes for all individuals and communities seeking and retaining employment.
Building Strategic Alliances towards Equitable Solutions
We will identify and collaborate with other organizations to unite efforts in creating equitable and viable solutions.
Empowering Leaders of Tomorrow
We will provide students from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds with a distinctive professional experience focused on gaining essential leadership skills and career pathways to positions of influence.
