CINCINNATI — May 19, 2022 — The Workforce Innovation Center at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber announced today that it has joined the Council for Inclusive Capitalism as an Ally. The Council is a global nonprofit organization that joins moral and market imperatives to build a more inclusive, sustainable, and trusted economic system that addresses the needs of our people and the planet.

“We’re excited to be an Ally with the Council and believe that we will be able to have a more significant impact on the Cincinnati region as employers provide win-win solutions for their employees and their businesses,” says Audrey Treasure, Executive Director of the Workforce Innovation Center.

Tom Williams, Chairman of North American Properties and Member of the Workforce Innovation Center’s Advisory Board says, “The Cincinnati region has an abundance of businesses that are building their workplaces with a mindset of inclusive capitalism. I hope that as many Cincinnati area companies as possible will formally commit to becoming Stewards with the Council and furthering their mission to make a more inclusive economic system in our region.”

Pope Francis has challenged business leaders to step up with concrete ideas and decisive actions. The Council is rising to that challenge by endeavoring to create stronger, fairer, more dynamic economies and societies, ultimately improving the lives of countless millions of people across the globe. The Workforce Innovation Center answers this call to action by partnering with businesses to advance the adoption of inclusive practices in their workplaces that empower employees, the community and their businesses to thrive.

“Thanks to the leadership and support of the Workforce Innovation Center, Cincinnati has become a hub for organizations leading the way in adopting inclusive and sustainable business practices,” said the Council’s CEO Meredith Sumpter. “I am grateful to the Workforce Innovation Center for joining the Council as an Ally and am excited to welcome its network of Cincinnati-based companies to join us as well, sharing their best ideas and innovations to build more inclusive economies and societies.”

Rooted in action, the Council is provided moral guidance by the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. Leadership of the Council is run by CEOs and global leaders who commit their organizations to specific actions that create long-term value for all stakeholders.

The Workforce Innovation Center is in the company of several leading organizations also committed to building a sustainable and inclusive future for generations to come. See the full list here –
