Connection Accelerator

 The Connection Accelerator program seeks to 

  • gather and record baseline data around regional retention
  • develop best retention practices
  • track progress and success
  • embed newcomers into effective social networks more quickly
  • help diverse talent thrive in the Pittsburgh region

The Welcome Cohort

The Welcome Cohort engages newcomers early to introduce and connect them to others in the region while participating in a variety of social, mentoring, and networking activities. While the program has been designed for diverse professionals who have lived in the region for less than two years, all who are interested are welcome to apply and attend activities!
