About Baltimore Together

Baltimore Together: A Platform for Inclusive Prosperity is a culmination of a two-year process to develop the city’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the next five years. During this process we gathered insights, feedback, and recommendations from more than 300 diverse voices representing business, government, and community.  However, this is much more than a report; this effort represents a commitment to driving economic growth in an inclusive and equitable manner to ensure everyone has the opportunity for success.

With a thriving port, world-class leadership in higher education and health care, and a vibrant mixture of arts, culture, history, and waterfront, Baltimore has served for generations as the economic engine for the State of Maryland. But for too long, many of our residents have not shared in the benefits of Baltimore’s economic growth.

Baltimore Together aims to change that by focusing on eliminating racial disparities by ensuring Baltimore’s Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) businesses thrive and communities of color receive the level of investment they deserve. Baltimore Together offers a blueprint for equitable growth by leveraging our local talent and entrepreneurs to create new economic activity that will benefit our entire city.

Our Vision

Baltimore will show the world how to create an urban economy that is based on diversity, inclusion, and resiliency and uplifts historically excluded Baltimoreans, while attracting investment, businesses, and people committed to contributing to an equitable economy.  

We will build a strong and inclusive economy by recognizing our city’s history of racialized economic disinvestment and the damage systemic racism has done to our Black residents and the greater community.

We will ensure economic opportunity for people of color by building on Baltimore’s many assets to implement strategies and policies that invigorate underserved and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) businesses in growth sectors and build generational wealth in Baltimore’s communities of color.
