About

Inclusive Economy London & Region is a coalition of organizations that want to see the regional economy succeed without leaving anyone behind. That includes integrating local economic development, poverty reduction, and green

initiatives into clear and manageable strategies.

We are drawing inspiration from other jurisdictions that are successfully rejuvenating their local economy in ways that create jobs and hope for marginalized and disadvantaged people—initiatives that draw on the economic

power of local anchor institutions and align mission, investments, and community wellbeing.
