The Mayor’s Maker Movement Roundtable is the first in a series, allowing the City to discover ways it can grow and support various innovative movements in every community.
The Maker Movement roundtable was also part of the White House’s Mayor’s Maker Challenge. Already identified as a national leader in the Maker Movement; Mayor William Peduto, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh Executive Director Jane Werner, Gable Foundation Executive Director Gregg Behr, TechShop Pittsburgh’s Senior Accounts Manager Les Geis, and The Sprout Fund Executive Director Cathy Lewis Long, all represented Pittsburgh at the White House Maker Faire on June 18th, 2014.
I&P aims to transform Pittsburgh into a world-class city through the intersections of technology, sustainability, and performance. While separate, like rotating wheel cogs, the three areas will only move forward when working together.
