Cambridge Business Diversity Directory

The Cambridge Business Diversity Directory is a tool connecting local businesses owned by historically excluded proprietors to customers. The Directory aims to elevate businesses owned by women, people of color, veterans, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and individuals of Portuguese descent. The Directory serves as a marketing and networking tool to connect these businesses with consumers, companies, and other institutions.

Those listed in this directory range in longevity, from businesses and entities that recently opened in Cambridge to legacy businesses and entities that have been in operation over 50 years. Businesses and entities listed in this edition have elected to be listed as self-identifying members of a historically excluded group. Though the Cambridge Business Diversity Directory is updated regularly, it is not a comprehensive representation of the many diverse businesses and entities operating in the city.
