MDF is committed to understanding and addressing systemic inequities and racism, and to working with partners, members, communities, leaders, and policy makers to build a diverse, inclusive, and equitable Maine economy.
We strive to be an organization of learning, collaboration, healing, and hope. We are working to uncover and address explicit and/or implicit bias in ourselves, our organization, and our work.
Our 28-year-body of independent economic data and research, Measures of Growth, unequivocally shows that addressing inequities in the Maine economy is not only the moral imperative of our time, but the economic imperative. MDF is committed to addressing these inequities through our research, programs, and partnerships so that all Mainers can experience economic equity, opportunity, and quality of life. This is only way Maine can truly thrive.
We look forward to engaging, learning, and moving forward with you – together.
