Kathy and Ziona will discuss the Evergreen Initiative, a Cleveland-based initiative designed to help low-income entrepreneurs succeed through partnerships with anchor institutions. The goal of the Evergreen Initiative is to provide meaningful jobs and opportunities to build wealth in inner-city communities. The Evergreen Initiative has helped entrepreneurs create employee-owned cooperative businesses providing laundry, food/agricultural, energy, and other services to hospitals, universities, charitable foundations, and governmental agencies in Cleveland.
