An Inclusive Economy: What Does That Mean?

In this episode of Cleveland Connects, we explore one challenge facing the upcoming “Cleveland Rising” Appreciative Inquiry summit: What does economic inclusivity look like?

We’ll examine what a regional economic strategy that truly tries to incorporate and lift minority entrepreneurs and communities scarred by persistent poverty would look like.  What policies might bring more people to the table and create a rising tide that really did lift all boats? And what might our region and its economy look like if we did that?
