Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
As a mission-based community leadership organization, Charlotte Center City Partners is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We recognize that CCCP must be a champion for racial equity and justice in all our work, while living these values through our internal processes and procedures.
We understand and acknowledge that Charlotte’s urban core has fostered inequity, injustice, and exclusion. Racist and unjust policies have destroyed neighborhoods and reduced access to opportunity, particular for people of color. Economic growth in recent years has exacerbated inequities; despite the most prolific decade of Center City growth in Charlotte’s history, disparities grew in the 2010s. We acknowledge this painful past and are committed to shaping a different future for our community.
The Center City 2040 Vision Plan includes an intentional focus on equity and contains numerous recommendations and initiatives to advance equity in the urban core.
