P4W is the workforce development board that connects funding, expertise, and opportunities to develop a thriving workforce in the Pittsburgh region. Families with low incomes continue to be disproportionately impacted by the effects of COVID 19, and are working to ensure that as we help rebuild the economy, we do so equitably. This must include helping to change employer policies and practices to create sustainable paths to economic stability for working families with low incomes. P4W and our key implementation partner, Allegheny County Department of Human Services, are committed to investing in innovation and creating cross-sector solutions to deliver a world-class workforce development system in the Pittsburgh region that functions for everyone. Working with over 60 local employers across 8 industries at our regularly convened Industry Council Meetings, we aim to not only educate employers on the perspectives and unique challenges of working parents with low incomes, but also help shift hiring, onboarding and mentoring practices to ensure these families have the social supports they need to be successful.
