Equity & Opportunity
Equity is at the core of the Greater Topeka Partnership’s Momentum 2027 Strategy. It is embraced by every partner including the Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce, Visit Topeka, Downtown Topeka, Inc., and GO Topeka. It is an intentional practice in all of our internal and external initiatives.
The Minority & Women Business Development (MWBD) organization is focused on empowering and assisting minority communities and women to start and grow businesses. Through advocacy, providing training and resources, networking, and mentoring, MWBD strives to build a strong and diverse business ecosystem.
