Including Everyone in Pittsburgh’s Transformation

Inclusive innovation is an action. It is providing equal access to products and services through the infusion of new ideas, people, and technology to meet complex challenges. From the arts to community development, to computer science; inclusive innovation is possible in everything. We know there is a tremendous opportunity when diverse people come together to problem solve. We strive for everyone to participate in and benefit from the development of new solutions. We believe in a Pittsburgh where if it’s not for all it’s not for us!
