The Center for Economic Inclusion is the nation's first organization dedicated exclusively
to advancing inclusive growth to achieve regional prosperity. 

We are a cross-sector organization committed to strengthening the Minneapolis-St. Paul region’s civic infrastructure and collective capacity to disrupt systems and influence market forces to catalyze shared prosperity and an inclusive economy.

The region should welcome the Center for Economic Inclusion....to help us move from what amounts to a Band-Aid, ‘we can fix this for you’ approach to one focused on recognizing people, their skills and their neighborhoods as assets.”
— -Pioneer Press Editorial Board
“If leaders coalesce around the Center to go beyond talk to real alignment, culture shifts, and action, the region will set a strong foundation for lasting growth — growth that comes from unleashing the talents of more people and entrepreneurs in the community.”
— Amy Liu, VP & Director of the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program
