Chaz Kellem, Manager of Diversity Initiatives, Pittsburgh Pirates, says, “It feels good to have this opportunity to bring diverse audiences together to share ideas and concepts. We plan to do our part in making Pittsburgh one of the best cities around.”
The Pirates are committed to diversity in the workforce in purchasing and in their numerous community activities and events. Each year the Pittsburgh Pirates hosts the African-American Heritage Celebration. Pittsburgh was the headquarters for the Negro National Leagues and the only city in the country with two Black professional teams, The Homestead Grays and The Pittsburgh Crawfords.
Spotted networking: Connie Portis, Anna Hollis, K. Chase Patterson, Sage Berlin, Vince Sims, Bernice and Chauncey Smith, Kathy Mayle Towns, Tami Miles Brown and Emmai Alaquiva.
