Led by Abdesalam Soudi, a team of Pitt students, faculty and staff got together to discuss what diversity means to them. The result: “Living & Working Together: The Meaning and Value of Diversity,” a documentary that was produced as part of the Culture and Linguistic Diversity Conference at Pitt, held in 2017.

Now, three years later, Soudi, lecturer in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Linguistics, invites others to contribute to the conversation as the nation collectively evaluates how they can contribute to an anti-racist society.

“Diversity is a work in-progress and there are always opportunities to do better. What better approach to start than a project about diversity from the bottom-up? Diversity, after all, means different things to different people,” said Soudi.
