DIVERSITY & INCLUSION INITATIVE
At the EC, we know the most successful and effective team is a diverse team. Establishing an inclusive environment where people from all backgrounds and experiences have an opportunity to create, launch and grow a business is what we continually strive for. We believe collaboration is the most effective way to have a meaningful impact on establishing and building an inclusive culture. To see meaningful results, this effort will take participation and engagement from local non-profits, corporations, higher-education institutions, community leaders and investors.
