2016 Carnegie Science Award Winners

Allegheny Conference on Community Development

The Chairman’s Award is the highest honor conferred at Carnegie Science Awards and will recognize the Conference for its unparalleled impact in transforming the Pittsburgh region through public-private partnerships that create fertile ground for the growth of science and technology achievement.

The Allegheny Conference strives to improve the economy and quality of life of the 10 counties of southwestern Pennsylvania. In its early years, the Conference leaders focused on creating a better place that would help the region attract and retain talent. Working closely with the public sector, the private sector-led Conference tackled environmental issues, air quality, water quality, flood control and urban redevelopment, all to engineer the first “Renaissance” that helped make the Pittsburgh region one of America’s “most-livable” places.

With the restructuring of the region’s industrial economy in the 1970s and ‘80s, the Conference led and supported regional efforts to transform the economy into diverse, technology-intensive, knowledge industries. Other initiatives nurtured the region’s arts and culture, including support for libraries, museums and a science center that are creating a next generation STEM workforce. Today, the Conference’s Regional Investors Council, representing more than 320 of the region’s largest employers, supports strategies that connect people to opportunity, doing it as always by following a philosophy of “leadership through partnership.”
