Vibrant Pittsburgh and the Urban Affairs Foundation of the Community Relations Council of Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh seek to engage Affinity Groups and support their efforts to grow the diversity of the region’s workforce. Affinity Groups that represent diverse communities are major assets in the region that serve as magnets for attracting more diverse talent. Affinity Groups provide critical support networks to their members and newcomers who connect with them. Because of the role they play, Affinity Groups are key partners in Vibrant Pittsburgh’s effort to attract, welcome, retain, and elevate a diversity of talent.
This year, the theme is New Partnerships. We believe when organizations and communities from diverse backgrounds come together, they foster unique relationships that strengthen our region. Additionally, these new partnerships must seek to build a more inclusive and multicultural region.
