The University of Pittsburgh’s 2022 Diversity Forum returns this year with the theme “Rewiring Our Systems: Transforming the Intersections of Inequity.” The forum’s mission is to engage in timely, informative and thought-provoking dialogue that furthers equity and inclusion among the University community and beyond. Everyone at Pitt, as well as the general public, is invited to attend. Students can receive Outside the Classroom Curriculum (OCC) credit

The free virtual event runs Monday, July 25, through Thursday, July 28. Workshops will include talks from keynote speakers Tarana Burke, founder of MeToo movement, and Nyle DiMarco, deaf activist and winner of “America’s Next Top Model” and “Dancing with the Stars” (English/ASL interpretation provided). Sessions throughout the event range in subject from redlining to water justice, cultural competency during grieving to fatphobia, inclusion in hiring to disability advocacy and much more.

The forum will also include the third annual Art of Diversity Showcase, a collection of artwork from all Pitt and regional communities.
