Our Mission

Mt. Auburn's mission, from inception, has been consistent — building the potential of communities across the U.S. to provide shared and sustainable improvements in economic well-being. We make an effort to view all our 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 can cause economic and social inequities. In our evaluation work, strategic advising 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.
