Next Generation Council

Mission

Emerging leaders thinking critically and acting collaboratively with regional stakeholders to elevate a racial, ethnic and generational diversity of talent in the Pittsburgh region.

Vision

To collectively make the Pittsburgh region inclusive, welcoming, and thriving for all.

The Next Generation Council was created to engage millennial leaders in the retention work happening in the Pittsburgh region, with the goal of gaining better insight into what young professionals think about the region and what impacts their desire and ability to stay in the region. As the millennial generation is diverse and highly mobile, their decision to stay in or leave our region will make a significant impact on our population growth and economic vitality over the next 20 years. The Next Generation Council is an important voice for the future of southwestern Pennsylvania.
