Pittsburgh Companies Find Success by Embracing Employees’ Differences

In the past, Pittsburgh wasn’t exactly known as the land of opportunity for marginalized members of the community. A lack of prospects met people of color, women, and other minorities pursuing their dreams. A 2019 report from The City of Pittsburgh’s Gender Equity Commission brought many of these shortcomings to the forefront in scathing detail.


Since that time, workplace diversity in Pittsburgh has grown. Some companies have invested in changing that narrative, focusing on ways that they can enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion within their workspaces. They have committed to making inclusion an integral part of their work cultures. From hiring to onboarding and everyday operations, these companies are among those dedicated to creating spaces that foster a sense of belonging for all.
