Racial Equity and Inclusion

MHIC is committed to addressing economic inequality through our work.

One of MHIC's core values is achieving the highest feasible level of participation for workers of color and minority business enterprises (MBE) in MHIC-financed projects. Drawing on the expertise of MHIC's Racial Equity and Inclusion Committee, we continually explore and implement new strategies to help MBEs and people of color (POC) thrive.

For each project MHIC finances, we collaborate with sponsors to establish ambitious yet achievable goals for both utilization of MBEs and employment of POC.
