The Dignity & Respect Champion program started in March 2010; 32 Greater Pittsburgh residents have received the designation based on a nomination by their co-workers, friends, mentors, or admirers.
The Dignity & Respect Campaign began as an internal initiative at UPMC in 2009. The Dignity & Respect Council of Greater Pittsburgh was formed as a volunteer advisory board in 2009 as the first community extension of UPMC’s Dignity & Respect Campaign. Since then, the Campaign has been adopted by schools, businesses, communities, and organizations around the country. In 2011, Maya Angelou was named the inaugural National Dignity & Respect Champion.
