What More Can We Do to Advance Racial Equity in Buffalo Niagara?

Since March, my thoughts and actions have revolved almost entirely around the impact of COVID-19 on our region, our employers and citizens. And while the state of our new reality has felt overwhelming at times, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership has stepped up to assist in a meaningful way. Our goal to provide up–to–date, clear, concise and trusted information to employers continues to drive our daily work and the appreciation of the business community has kept the BNP team motivated and moving forward.
