A Tech-Oriented, Diverse Community

The writer of this great piece about encouraging local law firms to hire non-white lawyers buried the lead at the end of the story.

Here's the quote that caught my eye:

"'Pittsburgh has an image around the nation as a blue-collar town, but it's not," Cottle [Eric Cottle, an African-American lawyer at Kirkpatrick and Lockhart, and a Duquesne grad] said. "It's high-tech and starting to become more diverse. But that image is not being portrayed nationally.'''
