A gate in the cathedral of learning

The aim of the 2021 Diversity Forum, Dismantling Oppressive Systems: Building Just Communities, is to engage and equip participants with the knowledge, skills and resources to identify sources of systemic oppression; consider strategies for dismantling that oppression; and inspire actions critical in fostering more equitable and just communities in which we live, work and learn. 

The organizers welcome all members of the Pitt community and community at-large to submit virtual workshop proposals for the 2021 forum, to be held July 26-29.

  • Workshops should run for 60-75 minutes, including Q&A.  
  • Workshop proposals should align with the forum's aim and objectives as detailed above.  

Workshops will be categorized to assist participants in meeting their learning and growth goals.
