5th Annual Gender Symposium: Pittsburgh’s Inequality Across Gender and Race
November 2, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm
This year’s Gender Symposium on Saturday, November 2, 2019 offers time and space to do a deep dive into the white paper, “Pittsburgher’s Inequality Across Gender and Race.” Released recently by Pittsburgh’s Gender Equity Commission, this groundbreaking report on gender and racial inequality in our city found serious disparities for all women, and especially for Black women and girls. Conducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, the report looked at 50 different outcomes related to health, income, employment, and education.
At the symposium, the University of Pittsburgh researchers will discuss the data and major findings. There will be a moderated panel and Q&A session, followed by break out sessions facilitated by community leaders.
The symposium is open to all gender scholars, students, organizational leaders, policy makers, and community members committed to issues related to women, girls, and gender equity.
