WHY The Dignity & Respect Council of Greater Pittsburgh will gather in front of the city’s policy leaders to recognize Pittsburgh’s 11 Dignity & Respect Champions of 2012. The Champions were chosen monthly throughout the year based on a formal nomination process.
Champions were selected based on their support of the values of dignity and respect and their application of those values in the workplace and in their communities. Champions will receive honors for their commitment to accepting and including others. The annual breakfast will kick-off Dignity & Respect Month, which is celebrated in counties across the Commonwealth and in many states nationwide.
The Dignity & Respect Campaign of Greater Pittsburgh began as an initiative by the Center for Inclusion at UPMC in 2008. Trying to encourage inclusion through organizational and behavioral change, the employees took a pledge and suggested actions that promote dignity and respect in the workplace. From this, the “30 Tips of Dignity and Respect” were created to inspire change through everyday behaviors. Within four years, the campaign expanded nationally.
