A Conversation Between

This unique program put a spin on the WLI “A Conversation With” event series by featuring TWO very special guests: Jayne Miller and Caren Glotfelty of Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and Allegheny County Parks Foundation, respectively.  Mary Guinee, Civil & Environmental Consultants, moderated a discussion between these senior leaders in Pittsburgh, highlighting Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy’s strategic vision for establishing a unified parks management plan as well as focusing on equitable projects and streamlining their working relationship with the City of Pittsburgh. Of her role as Executive Director for Allegheny County Parks Foundation, Glotfelty said, “I’ve spent many years repairing some of the dire ecological consequences of industrialization to our region. It’s a joy and privilege to now concentrate on the needs of 12,000 protected acres in our county parks – an abundant and rare assent for a single county.” We were thrilled for the opportunity to hear first-hand the highlights and hurdles these women have encountered along their professional journeys. Next up in this series: A Conversation With Melanie Harrington (Vibrant Pittsburgh) on November 5.
