CCAC Allegheny Campus to host panel discussion on gender and race inequality in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH—Students, the college community and the public are invited to the timely panel discussion “Pittsburgh’s Inequality across Gender and Race” on Thursday, November 21, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm. in the Foerster Student Services Center Auditorium on Allegheny Campus. The panel will include experts in the field from CCAC, the University of Pittsburgh and the City of Pittsburgh. The free event is hosted by the CCAC Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

The panel discussion is being held in response to a report of the same title conducted by a team of Pitt researchers and released by the City of Pittsburgh’s Gender Equity Commission, which found that health, education and employment prospects of Black Pittsburgh residents trail those of other comparable U.S. cities. 

Participating in the panel discussion will be moderator Carmen Livingston, professor, English, and campus diversity officer, CCAC South Campus; and presenters Andre L. Brown, assistant professor, Behavioral and Community Health Science, University of Pittsburgh, Graduate School of Public Health; Larry E. Davis, professor and dean emeritus, University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work; Juel Smith, interim associate dean, Academic Affairs, and professor, Biology, CCAC Boyce Campus; Megan Stanley, executive director, City of Pittsburgh Human Relations Commission; Sonya Thomas, CCAC student, Social Work; and Janet Manuel, member, City of Pittsburgh’s Equity Commission.
