We’re in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s historic Hill District to attend the grand opening of a new Workforce Innovation and Talent Center (or WITC). It’s just one of many new facilities housed inside the Ebenezer Baptist Church, providing a myriad of services to local residents, from job training to 24-hour daycare.
“The power of partnerships drives our ability to unlock individuals’ potential…For those who are underrepresented in our workplaces and underserved in our communities,” David Casey, SVP, Workforce Strategies & Chief Diversity Officer at CVS Health, who was onsite to cut the ribbon alongside Pastor Campbell and others, little more than a year after CVS Health committed nearly $600 million to social justice and equity.
Mayor William Peduto, also in attendance shared, “This critical service will benefit children, it will benefit those that are looking for employment. It will benefit those in their elder years who need just a little bit of help. They're not asking for a handout, they're asking for a hand up.”
