Background: On a national scale, Economic Clubs have served as a way to encourage dialogue among leaders who are dedicated to advancing the domain of economics and business for decades.  The most well-known Economic Clubs are the Detroit, New York, and Washington DC Economic Clubs.

The CLIMB Economic Club (CEC) was established to host forums to explore and discuss economic issues that are pertinent to people and communities of color. The CEC Forum Topics are curated and planned by the CLIMB Economic Club Roundtable which is comprised of nationally renowned economists, thought leaders, and enlightened business executives.
