Members of the Commission 50 are recognized annually for progress in creating, enhancing and sustaining their diversity and inclusion strategies.
This recognition is based on their responses to the Commission on Economic Inclusion’s annual Employers Survey on Diversity™.
The Commission 50 designation recognizes the 50 organizations with the highest combined scores on board, senior management, workforce and supplier diversity on the Commission’s most recent Employers Survey on Diversity.
Now, we would like to say 'Congratulations!' to the Commission on Economic Inclusion 2014 Best-in-Class member organizations. Selections were based on results of the 2014 Employers Survey on Diversity™ and follow-up interviews by Commission staff. Three honorees — a nonprofit/government organization, a large corporation and a middle-market member — were chosen in each category.
The YMCA of Greater Cleveland was one of three local organizations to win the Best-In-Class designation from the Commission on Economic Inclusion. The others were Eaton and the MetroHealth System.
The Greater Cleveland Partnership's Middle-Market Initiative provides resources and information to help create and sustain long-term success for Northeast Ohio's middle-market companies.
