2019 Regional Economic Inclusion Summit

COMMIT. COLLABORATE. CHANGE. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace

Wednesday, September 25, 7:30am - 6:00pm EDT


The Regional Economic Inclusion Summit will examine approaches to diversity, equity and inclusion in our workplaces and how we can come together to ensure that our region’s employers are destinations of opportunity for people of all backgrounds. Woven through the sessions will be the steps we need to take to commit to the work, collaborate to leverage our collective regional strengths, and change our practices and even our mindsets to achieve our shared goal of a thriving, inclusive and competitive Pittsburgh region.
