This Friday, CenterState CEO and the Urban Jobs Task Force (with funding from The Gifford Foundation) will co-host, “Building Equity: Linking Economic Growth and Opportunity.” This event offers our community an opportunity to address issues of economic inclusion and equity in Syracuse and learn from Cleveland, where business leaders, policy makers, and activists have developed a robust and intensive effort to make Cleveland a more inclusive and equitable community. The event is free, but reservations are recommended. Contact Ms. Liso Smith at (315) 416-363 or email@example.com to secure your spot.
