In an effort to build on our commitment to engage with each other and continue to grow and learn as a community, Pitt Business is encouraging its students, faculty, and staff to participate in equity, diversity, and inclusion events across the University this month.
Celebrate Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month
From September 15 through October 15, Latinx and Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated to acknowledge the history, culture, and contributions of Americans whose ancestry can be traced to Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Spain.
View the Pitt Calendar of Events for the month, including:
- October 2: Attend the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) Latin American and Caribbean Festival.
- October 8: Celebrate Art with CEOLI, a non-profit center for disabled youth located in Cochabamba, Bolivia that Pitt Business supports through service learning initiatives.
- October 14-16: Register for the Pitt LatinX Connect Conference.
Join the Hispanic Latinx Professional Association. Pitt Business Professor Tom Davis currently serves as the association’s Vice Chair, Strategic and Mentoring Program and supports their professional development initiatives including the Hispanic Roundtable Discussions.
You can also get involved and learn more about the Pitt Business Global Service Learning programs for undergrads that have been taking place in Bolivia, Puerto Rico, and Trinidad since 2017.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Highlights from Pitt Business
Beginning October 14th, Pitt Business will begin its next step in recruiting faculty in collaboration with the Office of the Provost’s larger Latinx cluster hire initiative. Prospective faculty will travel to campus to present select research focusing on Latinx topics throughout the month of October.
