Building Alliances for Tomorrow’s Work Force: New Voices, Technology, and Ideas


Workshop held Saturday, October 5, 2019 at the Historic Pump House.

There are jobs today that pay a living wage with benefits, provide a decent retirement, and don’t require a college education.

The panelists:

Steve Shelton, FOUNDER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, the Trade Institute of Pittsburgh.

DeWitt Walton, of the A. Philip Randolph Institute.
