We have reached an inflection point for the future of work in our region and the future of the Pittsburgh region itself. Our regional workforce will need to grow and upskill in order to be globally competitive. Our landmark 2016 Inflection Point report, issued last year, changed the conversation about the future of work in the Pittsburgh region and has been a galvanizing point for how educational institutions and businesses are developing plans and working together to reinvent one of our chief assets: workforce.

Many business and education leaders have already responded to the research and are turning this challenge into an opportunity – aligning training and programming to meet high-demand workforce needs. A companion to the 2016 report, the newly release Inflection Point 2017-2018, provides fresh data and insights. Included are detailed “best practices” videos and narratives from regional employers and educators, such as those below, plus others, who are working aggressively to turn a regional workforce challenge into a regional opportunity.
