PopUp! Pittsburgh is powered by Leadership Development Initiative, a program of Leadership Pittsburgh Inc.

Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to developing a diverse group of leaders to serve southwestern Pennsylvania. LPInc. is proud of its graduate network of more than 3,000 influential civic leaders working to maximize the potential of our community. These graduates are a rich resource for area nonprofit and public boards and commissions.

Leadership Development Initiative (LDI) is a program of Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. that is designed to cement rising Pittsburgh leaders’ engagement with the community and its neighborhoods.  It not only builds leadership skills and enlarges professional networks (all within the context of community awareness) but equally importantly, serves as a talent retention tool for the participating companies/organizations. PopUp! Pittsburgh is the shape that the Community Impact Project (CIP) has taken in some of our LDI classes, where a hands on project serves as a key component of the LDI program.

CIP provides a “real-world” and hands-on opportunity for leadership skill practice and development. This living, breathing “case-study” is undertaken by the group of high potential emerging leaders of LDI, working together with a defined regional neighborhood’s stakeholders, to deliver significant value to the host neighborhood/s, its people and businesses. The development, design and execution of PopUp! Pittsburgh/CIP provides highly talented and motivated emerging leaders from our region’s corporate, public and nonprofit sectors opportunities to hone the skills/strategies taught throughout the program year while getting to know a neighborhood at a deep level and engaging civically.

PopUp! Pittsburgh is one of the many different components of the LDI program. This project is modeled on the “Pop Up City” concept which seeks to momentarily revitalize a neighborhood that has excess vacant land by developing a temporary, low-cost initiative that has the ability to surprise, provoke, and entertain city residents and visitors in ways that change perceptions about the places where they occur.
