Pinderhughes Diversity Lecture Series

Pinderhughes Diversity Lecture Series

The Pinderhughes Diversity Lecture Series, which launched in 2007, is named in honor of Elaine Pinderhughes, a professor emerita of the School of Social Work whose seminal research revealed that race, ethnicity, and power strongly influence how social workers interact with clients. Over the past years, the series has featured doctors, anthropologists, and journalists, among others, who have reflected on topics like poverty, racism, and same-sex marriage.
