“As a Black leader in Northeast Ohio and a board member for Team NEO, I felt it imperative to contribute and provide feedback on this topic. We are at a crossroads in our societal history when topics of racial equity and inclusion have increasingly been discussed from the newspaper’s front page to the dining room table. KPMG is proud to support Team NEO because they make our community stronger, and this report helps us understand our challenges to help us be better.”
