Mt. Auburn Associates is a leader in the design and evaluation of strategies to promote the economic well-being of individuals, communities, and regions.

Mt. Auburn's mission from its inception has been consistent — building the potential of communities across the U.S. to provide shared and sustainable improvements in economic well-being. The firm makes an effort to view all its work through a racial equity lens. Over the past 30 years, Mt. Auburn has developed a keen understanding of how market conditions, power dynamics, and changing demographics in a city/region can cause economic and social inequities with profound impacts. In our evaluation work, our strategic planning projects, as well as our work in the creative industries, we focus on race, equity, and inclusion, ensuring that we represent all members of a community.

Clients are looking for answers...we know how to ask all the right questions.
