Diversity, Equity and Opportunity

About the Council’s Diversity, Equity & Opportunity Initiative

In July 2020, the Council announced the launch of a multiyear Diversity, Equity & Opportunity Initiative to be led by the Council’s Executive Committee. The Council’s recent design and execution of an impactful COVID-19 response plan for employers and elected officials will serve as the model we use to address racial equity challenges.

Through the Diversity, Equity and Opportunity Initiative, the Council’s leadership team will partner with subject matter experts and stakeholders from Massachusetts and beyond to aggregate data, understand root causes, identify actionable strategies and share best practices. The initiative will ensure that employers and individuals have access to information, insights, and programming to translate ‘intent’ into measurable ‘action’ and will serve as a bridge connecting underrepresented communities with economic and educational opportunities to move our Commonwealth toward greater equity and justice for all.
