Addressing Historic & Contemporary Inequities to Create an Inclusive, Wealth-Generating Economy for All

We aim to make Greater Boston the region to replicate—we will do this by engaging with the larger business community and investing in efforts to tackle persistent racial, ethnic, and gender-based wealth gaps. 

Catalyzing a multi-institutional focus on economic recovery and equity is critical. There is a long way to go but through dedicated, intentional work with our partners, including through programs like Pacesetters and City Awake, we aim to achieve economic inclusion for all in the Commonwealth.
