U. S. Steel Recognized by Vibrant Pittsburgh As a DE&I-Leading Organization

27 June 2024

United States Steel Corporation today announced it has been named a Vibrant Index 5.0 Champion for the second time in recognition of its diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) leadership in the Pittsburgh region. The award highlights organizations that demonstrate a strong commitment to DEI through their policies, programs and workforce representation.

The Vibrant Index is an annual diagnostic assessment conducted by Vibrant Pittsburgh, an economic development non-profit dedicated to increasing diversity and ensuring continued economic vitality in southwestern Pennsylvania, and the Allegheny Conference on Community Development. Designed to evaluate the DEI practices of area organizations, the Index uses a proprietary process to evaluate responses across nine impact areas. Organizations that score at or above the 95th percentile in each of the nine impact areas earn Vibrant Champion status, a designation reserved for those that embody leadership in cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace culture.

“U. S. Steel’s 2024 recognition as a Vibrant Pittsburgh Champion is another proof point of the progress we are making in our commitment to build and maintain a culture of belonging across our global operations,” said U. S. Steel President and Chief Executive Officer David B. Burritt.

As one of this year’s Vibrant Champions, U. S. Steel will share practices and policies with other DEI-leading organizations in the Pittsburgh area and work collectively with them to enhance the region’s diversity in order to secure its economic success.

“Our Vibrant Index results give us confidence that the DEI goals we have set for ourselves align with the larger goals of the region, and even the country, to attract, retain and grow a diverse workforce ready to tackle the challenges of the future,” said Mike Williams, U. S. Steel Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer.

Being named a Vibrant Pittsburgh 5.0 Champion is a distinction that highlights U. S. Steel’s role as a leading employer in the greater Pittsburgh region and the many contributions, commitments and investments it has made in the local community.

“Working with Vibrant Pittsburgh is one way that U. S. Steel is helping accelerate the business community in our hometown toward the kind of equitable, inclusive and diverse workplaces that are critical to creating a future-forward region,” said Mona Dine, U. S. Steel General Manager, Human Resources and Chief Diversity Officer.

Fostering diversity, equity and inclusion is a key pillar of U. S. Steel’s efforts to create a Culture of Caring. Recently, the company was named one of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024” by Newsweek. Additionally, U. S. Steel earned the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Equality 100 Award and, for a fourth consecutive year, received a perfect score of 100 on its Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The company also earned the highly respected Mansfield Certification, an accreditation awarded to a small group of companies that successfully improved the diversity profile of their corporate legal departments.
