Roadmap For Inclusive Innovation

Measuring community impact through cross-sector partnerships

The Roadmap for Inclusive Innovation (2015 – 2018) was the starting blueprint for the City’s Inclusive Innovation efforts. Through six focus areas, the Roadmap supported the vision of Mayor William Peduto for the City of Pittsburgh to be a city of equity, access and opportunity through cross-sector partnerships and collaboration. The outcomes by focus area can be found below. The work of Inclusive Innovation continues on through the Inclusive Innovation Summit and Meetups.
