Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
MCEDD’s mission is to promote the creation of family-wage jobs, the diversification of the economic base, and the growth, development and retention of business and industry within the five-county district. MCEDD’s staff are committed to doing this work in a way that promotes equitable outcomes for the diversity of all businesses and residents in the region.
Diversity: While race and gender are historical markers of diversity, we believe that diversity includes categories such as age, disability, nationality, intellectual perspective, socioeconomic background, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We also believe that diversity among our staff and various boards and committees strengthens our work through a variety of perspectives.
Equity: We believe that equity is achieved when systemic, institutional, and historical barriers based on the categories above are dismantled and no longer predict socioeconomic, education, and health outcomes.
Inclusion empowers the voice of all members of a community.
MCEDD will approach our organization’s mission through this culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion for the benefit of all residents, businesses, MCEDD employees, board and committee members.
