Diversity, inclusion, and belonging at Metro
Here’s how we’re evolving from within to tackle the inequities and economic impact that systemic discrimination has on business, community, and our collective future as a region.
We hold ourselves accountable to our commitment of representing the region’s entire business community fairly and equitably.
Through our political action commitee, we’re working hard to advance policy that supports inclusive economic development and very specifically addresses the complex challenges of systemic racism.
We’re generating conversation and awareness on topics of bias and the importance of inclusive economics.
We’re also educating our team, board, and community on issues of diversity, inclusion, and belonging.
We ensure our vendors, consultants and partners are representative of the business community and committed to diversity, inclusion, and belonging as much as we are.
We’re making Metro more accessible for everyone
