Panel Discussion with Members of
the Baltimore Integration Partnership
The Baltimore Integration Project (BIP) is a collaborative partnership of anchor institutions, funders, nonprofits and public organizations focused on establishing economic inclusion as the business culture of norm in the Baltimore region.
Anchor institutions are already central to the health and prosperity of our communities. Anchors are the region’s most powerful allies, providing the strongest opportunities to advance economic inclusion and positive economic growth for local citizens and small business owners.
BIP will support its anchor partners in developing and implementing economic inclusion policy and practice that will not only be highly impactful on its own, but also establish a proven business model applicable to other industry sectors.
Members of this unique collaborative discuss working to establish economic inclusion as the business culture of norm in the Baltimore region. Panelists include:
Kurt Sommer-Director, Community Development Life Bridge Health (previous Manager Baltimore Integration Partnership)
- Ashley Valis, Executive Director for Community Initiatives and Engagement with the University of Maryland, Baltimore (educational institution)
Dana Farrakhan, Senior Vice-President for Strategy, Community and Business Development with University of Maryland Medical Center (hospital)
John Brothers, President of the TRowe Price Foundation
