Commitment to DE&I

The GWB is committed to ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion across all policies and programs and is uniquely positioned to direct resources in a strategic manner toward the goal of creating a more equitable economy.

The Board is engaged in the ongoing analysis of its workforce development initiatives; assessing program utilization rates by age, gender, race, ethnicity, geography, business size and other indicators when available to address variances in service delivery and identify barriers that may disproportionately affect marginalized populations.

Through such ongoing analysis, the GWB will modify existing programs and services, implement new outreach tactics, and/or create new initiatives for the equitable benefit of Rhode Island jobseekers, workers, future workers and employers.
