Dignity & Respect Campaign
Dignity + Respect = Inclusion
At UPMC, inclusion begins with a core belief that everyone deserves dignity and respect.
In 2008, the UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion introduced the Dignity & Respect Campaign to create a more inclusive workplace culture.
As communities and organizations outside of UPMC have learned about what we are doing here, Dignity & Respect has grown from an internal initiative to a national campaign!
Find out how we’ve turned those words into actions.
Integrating Dignity & Respect
For us, dignity and respect are more than just a campaign. They are guiding principles that help UPMC become a better provider of services and employer.
We have integrated dignity and respect into:
- Employee feedback
- Learning and development modules
- Annual evaluations
- Business unit reports
Following the 30 Tips
The Dignity & Respect Campaign grew at UPMC by listening to employees and finding out what inclusion means to them.
In response to that feedback, we’ve created the 30 Tips of Dignity & Respect. Practice one each and every day.
To help you promote dignity and respect in your workplace or community, we’ve created a variety of Dignity & Respect resources you can share.
