Vision, Purpose & Results


Working collaboratively with other regional leaders and organizations, the Council will support the repositioning of the region as a place where opportunities to thrive for minority-owned businesses are improving, employers and entrepreneurs fully embrace inclusion and diversity and where the region’s economy is growing and increasingly more equitable.


Drive regional prosperity through intentional inclusion of certified minority owned businesses into the region’s economy and through programming/platforms that support MBE connections with sourcing organizations and capacity development resources. Minority Business Enterprises will be distinguished by certification rather than being defined by it.
