The Inclusion Network

The Inclusion Network serves as the University of Pittsburgh’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) community of practice. The Network was developed to leverage personal, professional, and technical expertise and interest to progress University-wide strategies, initiatives, and resources that advance the University’s strategic DEI goals.

Network goals:

  • Convene DEI practitioners from around the University and the broader community into a formal community of practice.
  • Promote greater awareness, communication, and collaboration
  • Build and expand connections, coalitions, and community
  • Improve the exchange of information, resources, and best practices
  • Catalyze innovative DEI projects and initiatives
  • Support, celebrate, and inspire greater commitment and investment in University-wide DEI strategy

The Inclusion Network is open to all University community members engaged in DEI practice. Network members include DEI professionals, practitioners, and volunteers.

Membership currently includes faculty, staff, and students across the University system.
