Right now, the world needs leaders. We need them to be compassionate, empathetic and hopeful while simultaneously showing urgency in leading response and, eventually, setting our region on a path to recovery. Here in the Pittsburgh region, our leaders are stepping up. They’re contributing to the greater good and giving communities and the world examples to follow and live by.

To give you a view into who’s putting these values into action, we are starting a weekly video series – Look for the Leaders – spotlighting leaders across the Pittsburgh region who are bringing their leadership, resources and values to the table to get us through this crisis.
First up, we’re spotlighting Laura Shapira Karet, President & CEO, Giant Eagle, Inc. Karet and her team are literally on the front lines during this crisis, working hard to keep shelves stocked with essentials to feed families across our region. Giant Eagle is also partnering with local organizations like the Pittsburgh Penguins and Primanti Bros. to provide jobs to displaced employees, giving their employees $10 million in bonus pay as they work through the pandemic, providing adjusted shopping hours for first responders and the elderly, and most recently, limiting the amount of shoppers in stores at one time.
