An interactive discussion on diversity and inclusion in Pittsburgh.

On December 6th, don’t miss your chance to meet and engage with leaders representing the cultural communities that are reshaping Pittsburgh’s future. Building from discussions held through the Diversity Through the Eyes of Women program series, this dialogue will address challenges and barriers facing the immigrant and international communities, as well as ways in which the larger community can promote a more welcoming environment.

In preparation this event, please enjoy this podcast, brought to you from the Point Park Center for Media Innovation! Community leaders and panelists from previous discussions in the series, Lois Mufuka Martin, Chief Volunteer Engagement Officer at the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania and Bishnu Timsina, Vice Chair, Board of Directors, Bhutanese Community Association of Pittsburgh, discuss their experiences as immigrants in Pittsburgh.

Mary Montague is a peace building and conflict resolution practitioner with over 40 years of experience in Northern Ireland. As a mediator and trainer, she has trained police officers on working with the community and diversity, and even supported the transition of armed groups toward peace. In addition, she is credited with the design and delivery of the highly commended European Building Relationships in Communities (BRIC) project, one of the first using systemic mediative and restorative approaches, which was delivered across Northern Ireland. Mary is an active member of both the Global Peacebuilder Summit and Mediators Beyond Borders, where she has developed and delivered mediation interventions and training programs in the Balkans, Afghanistan, the Pakistan region, and Sudan.
