Inspire Speaker Series

This May the GBA Inspire Speaker Series will host Colonel Mark Mykleby (U.S. Marine Corps) and Bill Peduto. Now at New America Foundation, Mark is working to create the strategic construct to implement the concept of sustainability as the American grand strategic imperative for the 21st century.  Audience members at May’s Inspire Speakers Series will gain insight into an intriguing and sometimes overlooked perspective on sustainability and how it relates to the future of our country’s security. 

Bill has served Pittsburgh’s East End neighborhoods for over a decade and been integral in shifting the city’s economy toward education and medical technology.  He has been a champion of protecting and enhancing Pittsburgh’s recent reputation as a green initiative leader and helped create the city’s comprehensive Climate Action Plan.  Bill is the ideal local voice to help celebrate the finale of this season’s Inspire Speakers Series.
