The Forbes Funds, The Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership and Fygment Productions, in partnership with Venture for America, are sponsoring a Social Enterprise Expo for companies who are doing good while making money.  This event will feature Project RE startups, UpPrize finalists, and Social Justice Weekend teams, in addition to other businesses on the rise in Pittsburgh.  You'll also get a rare opportunity to hear from Leslie Miley, the Director of Engineering of Slack.  Leslie will offer a timely point of view on creating the most inclusive for- and non-profit organizations on the planet (but especially in Southwestern PA); discuss his experiences at Twitter, Apple, and Google; and talk candidly about lessons learned on blending a city, causes, and technology for EVERYONE.  Bring something to write with because the lessons are far beyond just building software; this candid talk will help all organizations communicate and appreciate the challenges and opportunities in supporting the most talented people from all industries and backgrounds.
