In 1995, several consulting engineering firms and government/municipal officials formed the “Pittsburgh Minority and Women Business Enterprise Engineering Initiative.” The name was later changed to the Southwestern Pennsylvania Engineering Outreach, or SPEO. This group identified the need to provide technical, marketing, and general business assistance to minority- and women-owned businesses in the Southwestern Pennsylvania region.  Part of this effort has included working with local institutions to encourage and financially support young men and women who are interested in starting a career in the engineering profession.

SPEO is a non-profit organization whose members are dedicated to mentoring local minority- and women-owned business enterprise (MBE/WBE) firms and providing networking and subconsulting opportunities to them. SPEO is committed to its mission of increasing the opportunities available to its MBE/WBE members and prospective engineering and science students.
