Diversity


With Procter & Gamble, Macy's, and Toyota annually making top lists for diversity and inclusion, and active African American, Chinese, European, Indian and Gay Chambers' of Commerce, the Greater Cincinnati region might surprise those who don't automatically think of "diversity" when the Midwest or Cincinnati are mentioned. Home to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, the region boasts learning centers like UC's Center for Jewish Culture and Ideas, and a minority business accelerator founded by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. Old standards like the Panegyri Greek Festival, Northside Pride Festival, and downtown's Cincinnati Equinox show we know how to celebrate our neighbors' diversity as well.
