The Advanced Leadership Initiative takes a unique and deliberate approach to corporate diversity in Pittsburgh.
TALI's mission to build the pipeline of African Americans in executive leadership positions is critical and increasingly more important.
As a result of this Initiative, the development of African American leaders will foster in Pittsburgh:
Through a partnership with Carnegie Mellon University, The Advanced Leadership Initiative presents the Executive Leadership Academy to address 360-degree leadership development, with a particular emphasis on the unique challenges faced by African American professionals .
This executive development program provides the tools, exposure, and training necessary to increase the visibility and success of high-performing African Americans so that they can contribute to their organizations — and our community — at the highest levels.

“TALI is the bold solution needed to rebuild confidence among rising African American leaders that Pittsburgh is a city that supports them as high-impact contributors in business and civic leadership.”
