Diversity, Inclusion and Fairness.


Mr. Kirkland is the Pennsylvania Department of General Services
Deputy Secretary for Diversity, Inclusion and Small Business Opportunities.

Diversity, Inclusion and Fairness. I’m certain we all are familiar with these three words and what they mean. In Pennsylvania’s state government system, however, they have become much more than words – they have become a way of life.

Since taking office, Governor Tom Wolf and the Wolf Administration have adopted diversity, inclusion and fairness as their guiding principles for economic development and state government operations.  Governor Wolf solidified his commitment to that philosophy when he signed Executive Order 2015-11 to improve the participation of small and small diverse businesses in state government contracting and the Commonwealth’s overall economy.   Continue reading

Darrell Warden: A Pittsburgh Success Story

By Christiana Dillard

“It’s always about being better.”  Darrell Warden, hiring manager for Team Warden & Team Tri-state Group (a part of The Miles Group Insurance Agency) is the embodiment of his own statement. The agency has personnel in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and even Delaware; and their motto, “One Vision,” exemplifies their commitment to “being better.”  And each day Warden personally strives to be the best.

Warden had his beginnings in Rankin, a low-income borough in the Greater Pittsburgh area. However, he refused to allow the town’s bleak environment to bring him down. He attended Full Sail University in Florida and went on to become a music executive at Bad Boy Records with Sean “P. Diddy” Combs. Warden was at Bad Boy for ten years before moving back to Pittsburgh to work in the mortgage loan department at PNC Bank. When he was laid off from PNC, he found out that some of his old acquaintances were forming their own insurance group, headed by Troy Miles and hopped on board. For his role as a founding member of The Miles Group, Warden became a hiring manager for his own team within the agency and hasn’t looked back since. Continue reading

Call to Action: Help Expand NAP in Distressed Communities


Over the past few years, we’ve asked you to call your elected officials in support of funding increases to the Pennsylvania Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP). Thanks to your advocacy, there is increasing, bipartisan support to expand the program to help communities like Wilkinsburg continue to grow and thrive!

NAP funding leverages additional resources for Wilkinsburg while building our community’s technical capacity and infrastructure. Recent data show that $500,000 in NAP support generates $900,000 in economic activity and $32,000 in new state tax revenue that would otherwise go unrealized. Without this important source of funding and partnerships, we would not be able to continue our work to rebuild Wilkinsburg’s economy and improve our community’s quality of life.

Senators and representatives have issued co-sponsor memos to double NAP to $36 million (since 1967, the NAP budget has been stuck at $18 million statewide). This would unlock even more vital resources for housing, food security, and community organizations across the state to build partnerships with for-profit tax credit investors.

Will you help us get more co-sponsors and send a clear message to Harrisburg?
Please take a few moments to contact your legislators and ask them to support the expansion and modernization of the NAP. Here’s a sample letter that can be personalized for your specific elected officials. We appreciate our community advocates like you – thank you for your continued support!
