The event took place on Friday, Nov. 13, at Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center in Oakland. It included presentations from a range of more than 20 experts across the U.S., including local elected and government officials, civic leaders, regulators, academics and researchers, and representatives of nonprofits and interested organizations.
