Newark Anchor Collaborative: Promoting Racial Equity and Equitable Growth – Mar 9

Posted by MARGA Inc. on February 21, 2023

The Newark Anchor Collaborative (NAC) is a unique cross-sector collaboration of anchor institutions committed to equitable economic growth with a racial equity lens in Newark. Anchors in the collaborative represent a wide range of sectors including arts and culture, higher education, healthcare, and private corporations. The NAC story is a compelling example of how the resources of anchor institutions can be leveraged to collectively increase employment and procurement opportunities, attract new residents, and explicitly confront persistent racial inequities. Initiatives such as NAC can create a mutually transformative space through which anchor institutions can both contribute to strengthening their localities and shifting their internal policies, practices, and priorities. Join a panel presentation with representatives from various NAC anchors as they share the NAC story along with best practices and lessons learned in creating a cross-sector anchor collaborative.
