Kent State University has been recognized as a member of the 2013 Commission 50 by the Commission of Economic Inclusion, a program of the Greater Cleveland Partnership. 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.
“Congratulations on your organization’s significant efforts regarding diversity and inclusion,” wrote Brian Hall, interim executive director of the Commission on Economic Inclusion, in his letter to the university.
Kent State and the other employers recognized this year for their commitment to the business value of economic inclusion are listed alphabetically on the Commission 50’s website.
Created in December 2000, the Commission on Economic Inclusion is a broad-based coalition of more than 100 Northeast Ohio employers who are committed to making the region’s diversity a source of economic strength.
