Top industry CEOs and cabinet executives gathered on May 4th for the 2023 CEO Vision Breakfast – Build, Sustain, Grow: The Future-Forward Workplace. Executives from UPMC, Highmark, Giant Eagle, and Thermo Fisher will make up the 170 executives representing 90 Pittsburgh organizations. The breakfast is the only diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) convening specifically curated for CEOs and their cabinet members in the Greater Pittsburgh Region.
We were honored to host our distinguished keynote speaker, Dr. Andre M. Perry, present our inaugural DEI Innovation Award to Dr. Jessica Spradley, and engage with Pittsburgh’s leadership around vital DEI work.
