We are always learning.
CMU faculty, staff and alumni collaborate with the Center in an effort to continuously strive for an equitable and diverse campus.
RACISM IS REAL
Tartan Allies is a series of sessions offered to CMU faculty, staff, and students to foster a network of people who are committed to working toward an affirming environment for all at CMU. In particular, the series focuses on being an ally to those in the LGBTQ+ community. Tartan Allies is made up of three progressive sessions, with participants free to choose the number they wish to complete. As our name suggests, being an ally is not a passive behavior. Good and effective allies listen, learn and act. Join us for Tartan Allies sessions if you are interested in becoming part of this inclusive and supportive community.
If you have completed Safezone training before we encourage you to participate in Tartan Allies to ensure you stay current with the information you have and remain a part of this network of people committed to creating an inclusive community here at CMU.
Bias Busters @ CMU
The Center in partnership with colleagues across campus and in our School of Computer Science, who originally piloted Bias Busters @ CMU (modeled after Google's Bias Busters @ Work), will be hosting several trainings for the campus community. To learn more about Bias Busters @ CMU, please visit their website. RSVP is required to attend a training and spots are limited so please sign up as soon as possible, or at least 24 hours before the scheduled training.

Building on the work of previous iterations, MOSAIC 2019 centers intersectionality as the root of our understanding of identity. As a regional conference, MOSAIC 2019 pulls in key partners from the Greater Pittsburgh community to create space and provide tools for conversations about intersectional identities. Attendees will discuss the multiple layers of identity and how to apply this understanding both inside and outside of academic spaces.
