With more than 53,000 farms of all types and sizes, agriculture is Pennsylvania’s largest economic enterprise. However, this is an area in which BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities are often excluded due to what’s been identified as systemic racism.
WorkplaceDiversity is an online job board that seeks to change the status quo. Professionals interested in agricultural careers can better connect and engage with inclusive employers throughout Pittsburgh and other Pennsylvania regions using this niche job board dedicated to DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion).

In 2021, Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding announced on behalf of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture that the advancement of racial justice, equity, diversity and inclusion continues to be a top priority. With the arrival of the WorkplaceDiversity job board, Pittsburgh residents looking for rewarding jobs in agriculture, and farms, organizations, or stakeholders seeking experienced employees can now instantly connect.
“WorkplaceDiversity is actively working to dismantle the barriers individuals from differing racial and religious backgrounds, and those in the LGBTQ2S+ community often face when looking to advance their careers,” says Dan Provost of WorkplaceDiversity.
“Our job board makes it easier for individuals to find the types of employees in the agricultural sector that embrace inclusivity while helping the industry as a whole meet their DEI targets.” By using the network of job boards such as HispanicDiversity.com, VeteransConnect.com, and LGBTConnect.com, the WorkplaceDiveristy network ensures maximum exposure for companies looking to attract a diverse pool of talent.
Featuring a user-friendly interface, the WorkplaceDiversity platform simplifies the job search process across various fields and sectors. Once the job seeker has input their desired role and geographic preference, the platform generates a comprehensive list of opportunities.
Employers also benefit from a platform that allows for extensive reach and exposure. Each job posting includes an organization’s profile, logo, website link, social media links, and even video content. Specialized packages offer additional benefits such as spotlighted jobs, featured jobs, and banner ads.
Now that the WorkplaceDiversity job board is available to the agricultural sector in Pittsburgh, PA, employers seeking a more diverse and equitable environment and employees seeking a safe and inclusive workplace can connect with one another .
