The 6 issues black tech leaders in Pittsburgh brought before City Council
from The Incline
A commission or task force focusing on black technology in Pittsburgh may soon be suggested to City Council. During a more than 90-minute conversation Thursday at a City Council post-agenda meeting, council member Theresa Kail-Smith — who requested the meeting— said the creation of that task force or commission might be the first legislation she'll propose on the topic. The post-agenda meeting stemmed from Kail-Smith meeting Kelauni Cook, who spearheaded an April event during the city's Inclusive Innovation Week to answer the question "Where is black tech in Pittsburgh?" From there, Cook realized there was momentum and created Black Tech Nation, which starts with Pittsburgh.
