As one of PUMP’s Advocacy + Public Policy Agenda key themes, we support Equitable Opportunities for Success.

Access to a diverse array of educational opportunities, funding for job-creating entrepreneurs, and fostering a competitive business environment will pave the way for employment opportunities that all of our region’s residents can benefit from.

  1. Access to affordable, high-quality education and workforce development opportunities for all children and adults.
  2. Equitable access to individual, community, and financial support for education, employment, and entrepreneurship.
  3. A competitive business environment that fosters job creation and innovation by employers that support equitable opportunities and good paying jobs.

These are a few of the projects PUMP is actively involved in to ensure the Pittsburgh region has more equitable opportunities for success for all. Check out our community calendar for additional events and activities to get involved in these and other key regional issues.

  1. PUMP endorses The Campaign for Fair Education Funding by becoming a campaign member organization.
  2. PUMP testified at the Pittsburgh Public Schools 2018 budget hearing regarding a committed focus on equity.
  3. PUMP serves as a promotional sponsor for the All for Summit.
