The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (PMAHCC) is the principal regional advocate for the Hispanic business community’s civic and economic interests. Their mission is to develop, promote, and advocate on behalf of Hispanic businesses & professionals in the Pittsburgh region, while encouraging the advancement and economic growth of Pittsburgh’s Hispanic community.
On March 24th, PWSA had the opportunity to speak to this group along with representatives of Pennsylvania American Water (PAW) and the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission in the PMAHCC’s #LatinoPittsburgh Digital Speaker Series. The goal of the speaker series is to share relevant information, inspire growth, and foster opportunity. The workshops include community leaders and members as well as other individuals and programs that have a positive impact, not only on the Hispanic community, but Pittsburgh as a region.
PWSA speakers included Julie Quigley, Director of Customer Service; Sarah Visznicki, PGH2O Cares Coordinator; and PGH2O Cares Analysts, Rebecca Copney and Michael Anania. PWSA and PAW discussed how water utilities in the City of Pittsburgh are taking on Diversity and Inclusion, customer assistance programs, lifting of the water shut off moratorium, and more.
We were happy to share information about our translation services, which are available when calling our Customer Service Department or visiting our website at pgh2o.com. We also added translations of our customer assistance program flyers and 2021 Rate Brochure to our website in the top three most requested languages in Pittsburgh (Spanish, Chinese, and Tigrinya) to make this important information as accessible as possible.
