The Pittsburgh Cities of Inclusion Summit was held today at PNC park where over 150 leaders gathered.  This Summit brought together individuals with disabilities, family members, city officials, community leaders, non-profits, corporate leaders, foundations and other funders, to jointly create a vision for Pittsburgh as an inclusive city.*  Mobility21 Program Manager, Lisa Kay Schweyer, shared her expertise as a thought leader in the Access to Services breakout sessions.

* An inclusive city is an urban community that values social inclusion for all, ensuring people of all abilities are involved in their communities, able to effectively pursue opportunities and contribute, safely express themselves, and exercise their rights. These cities provide access and opportunities for everyone to take part in employment, education, health, housing, and to access community services.
