CDO Forum


After a 2012 convening of the Corporate Equity and Inclusion Roundtable event, Pittsburgh based Chief Diversity Officers and other leaders who were responsible for driving diversity and inclusion in their organizations met to explore how they could help create more equitable and inclusive workplaces throughout the Pittsburgh region. In 2013, the CDO Forum began convening quarterly, sharing practices, examining regional workplace diversity and inclusion issues, and exploring ways to support one another. In 2015 and 2016, the Forum worked with Vibrant Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Today and the Regional Workforce Diversity Indicators Team to conduct a study of how workers were experiencing the workplace and community. These efforts resulted in the 2016 release of the first Pittsburgh Regional Diversity Survey.


The mission of the Pittsburgh region CDO Forum is to influence organizations to prioritize diversity and inclusion (D&I) as a strategic imperative by attracting, enabling, engaging and retaining diverse people who will thrive in the Pittsburgh region.
