#Diversity: More than 300 guests made their way to the Doubletree Hotel and Suites, Downtown, for the CORO Pittsburgh Martin Luther King Jr. Awards, Saturday night. “What made the party so unique was the incredible diversity in age, race, gender, neighborhood and the background of all the people in attendance,” said Greg Crowley, CEO of CORO.
#Leadership: CORO is an organization that works toward developing an inclusive, diverse group of dedicated community leaders. The event was sponsored by UPMC and UPMC Heath Plan. La’Tasha D.
