Economic development initiatives prioritizing inclusivity can pave the way for a more equitable society with increased opportunities for all individuals, regardless of their background.


By providing opportunities and support for black individuals to thrive economically, we can reduce inequality and create a more inclusive society. Here are a few ways in which this can be achieved


Economic development efforts should also aim to dismantle systemic barriers that disproportionately affect the black community. This can involve working to eliminate discriminatory practices in hiring, procurement, and access to capital.
