The 2017-2018 Social Justice Research Lunch Series

"Race, Equity and Inclusion: How Cleveland Generates Wealth"

Race, Equity and Inclusion:  How Cleveland Generates Wealth


- Kevin Alin, Director of Regional Engagement
- Peter Truog, Director of Civic Innovation and Insight
Fund for Our Economic Future

What happens when a community comes together to unpack the history of structural racism and how it manifests locally? In 2017, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, the Fund for Our Economic Future, and other engaged partners funded a learning journey to increase shared understanding of racial inequality in Northeast Ohio and foster productive dialogue among stakeholders. Through that journey, The Fund for our Economic Future has produced an analysis looking at how wealth is generated annually in the Cleveland MSA through a racial equity and inclusion lens. A discussion of this analysis and the questions that it provokes will be the focus on this presentation by Kevin Alin and Peter Truog.


The Social Justice Research Lunch Series presents monthly events where faculty and researchers across academic disciplines present how social justice is central to their research. Question and answer sessions to follow presentations.
Bring your lunch. Drinks and desserts provided.
