Economic inclusion is a vital component in pursuing business success. It is for that reason, Frederick County Office of Economic Development (OED) and local company, Platinum PR (PPR), are creating a new Diversity and Inclusion pilot program to promote economic diversity, equity, and inclusion in Frederick County. Under this pilot program, OED and PPR will focus on three major initiatives: increased and sustained outreach efforts to underrepresented business owners, broader education programs on inclusivity and support for existing businesses and partnership projects with local organizations dedicated to under served people in Frederick County.
Our hope is that this program addresses economic inclusion in a comprehensive manner. Although we are in the beginning stages of developing this program, we are excited about the potential for its impact in our community.
This pilot program will be developed over the course of the next year. If you are interested in learning more, speaking with someone about this program, or finding out the steps to get involved, please find the contact information below.
The 4th annual event will highlight technologies being developed at the NCI and the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNL) to encourage technology licensing and collaborations, startup company formation and the translation of NCI discoveries into solutions to benefit patients.
