Town Of Brookline Releases New Diverse And Inclusive Business Directory

636

Town Administrator Chas Carey and Caitlin Starr, Assistant Director of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Relations, are pleased to share that the Town of Brookline has released the 2023 Diverse and Inclusive Business Directory.

The complete directory can be found here.

The directory highlights and celebrates Brookline’s diverse, accessible, and inclusive independent business community. Through community canvassing and several online campaigns, Brookline businesses and organizations were invited and encouraged to be included in the new directory.

Ten new businesses were added to the directory this year. The directory features coffee shops, restaurants, shops, art studios, health studios, non-profits and more.

The directory also houses a visual key, allowing users to determine businesses owned by Diverse Business Enterprises as well as those that are fully accessible.

“The Town of Brookline has worked closely with our businesses and community members to ensure that inclusivity remains a priority,” Starr said. “We will continue to update the directory yearly and hope to garner a supportive atmosphere for these businesses.”

Hard copies of the directory are available at Town Hall, the Public Health Building, Brookline Libraries and the Senior Center. An electronic Word document is also available for improved screen reader accessibility.

Any questions about the directory or how to best access it, please reach out to Caitlin Starr, MPH, CDE, Assistant Director in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Relations at cstarr@brooklinema.gov or at 617-730-2345.
