We strive to strengthen the region, inspire systemic change, and transform lives.
The Pittsburgh Promise promotes high educational aspirations among urban youth, funds scholarships for post-secondary access, and fuels a prepared and diverse regional workforce.
We envision a future where all our urban youth are equipped to reach post-secondary success, our public schools serve all children excellently, our city is flourishing in all its neighborhoods, and our workforce is widely diverse and highly skilled to advance a region that is good and just for all.
Charged by the Board of Directors and chaired by the Executive Director, the DEI Committee of The Pittsburgh Promise ensures that all aspects of our work – internally and externally – reflect and are informed by our guiding principles, first and foremost of which is Equity and Inclusion.
The Pittsburgh Promise does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, creed, gender, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, age, military/veteran status, national origin, or disability in any of its activities or operations.
