BOSTON, OCT. 10, 2018.....More than a year and a half after convening a group of black community leaders to advise his administration, Gov. Charlie Baker said Wednesday that he was prepared to put $10 million behind new skill building programs and educational initiatives recommended by the group in a new report.

Baker signed an executive order in early 2017 creating the Black Advisory Commission to advise his administration on ways it can extend economic prosperity to black communities across the state.

That commission, led by former Neighborhood Health Plan CEO Deborah Enos, reported back Wednesday with it first set of recommendations. The report calls for improving opportunities for black students, expanding pathways for advancement for black workers and helping black-owned businesses become more competitive.
