Project updates

The Advisory Group for the Mayor’s Education Summit released a set of 18 recommendations in November 2016 for ways to address the opportunity gap and disparities in public schools that affect students of color. The recommendations were informed by community input from 19 meetings across the city, a citywide summit, and an online survey. Cedar River Group analyzed the public input and facilitated the Advisory Group.

Iconic Pacific Tower on Beacon Hill has been rededicated as a center for innovation in community health. Cedar River Group is the effort’s partnership builder and has helped raise $55 million from state, local and philanthropic sources for the necessary capital improvements.
