Kaiser Permanente is partnering with Inner City Capital Connections to help small businesses in economically distressed areas grow and create jobs.
When you think about what makes for a healthy community, creating jobs probably doesn’t come to mind first. But Kaiser Permanente, whose mission includes improving the health of its communities, knows that a community’s economic well-being is a key factor.
That’s why Kaiser Permanente has partnered with Inner City Capital Connections, a national nonprofit that helps small businesses — located in economically distressed areas — to create sustainable growth and good jobs. With Kaiser Permanente’s sponsorship, the nonprofit has offered its 40-hour executive education program in Oakland, Los Angeles, San Diego, Baltimore, and now in Sacramento.
