LEARN MORE & RSVP | PRESS RELEASE

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
