On October 25, the Heinz Awards hosted a networking meeting for past winners of the illustrious award to share their current aspirations and concerns. Established by Teresa Heinz in 1993 to honor the memory of her late husband, U.S. Senator John Heinz, the Heinz Awards celebrate the extraordinary achievements of individuals in the Arts, the Economy and the Environment. There are six recipients this year, two recipients in each of the three categories.

Jewish Healthcare Foundation President and CEO Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD joined a Grantmakers Panel at the Heinz Awards Network Meeting at the Museum Lab in Pittsburgh. Panelists also included Chris DeCardy, CEO, The Heinz Endowments, and Lisa Schroeder, president and CEO, The Pittsburgh Foundation. The session was moderated by Grant Oliphant, CEO, The Conrad Presbys Foundation.

With nearly 100 in attendance, the session allowed participants to get the pulse of our region from the perspective of grantmakers in the community. Overall, the themes of hope, clarity of vision, and creativity permeated the intense conversations among people of monumental achievement sparked during the full-day program. Karen Feinstein commented, "this was a unique and unforgettable experience. Teresa Heinz has given Pittsburgh an invaluable gift over these many years in her efforts to expose us to extraordinary people with extraordinary aspirations that they brought to reality."
