Twelve individuals who all year long, embrace diversity, embody compassion and demonstrate mutual respect for themselves, their peers and their community were recently celebrated for being “the most liveable city’s” 2015 champions in the fight for dignity and respect.

On Jan. 12 at the Cabaret at Theater Square, the Dignity & Respect Campaign held their annual “Salute to 2015 Dignity & Respect Champions of Greater Pittsburgh” luncheon featuring KDKA’s Lynne Hayes-Freeland as the emcee. It was also special because it was the official launch of the national organization, Dignity & Respect Campaign Inc.

For five years, the Dignity & Respect Campaign, once a local initiative of UPMC used to ensure that dignity and respect was apart of the patient, employee and community experience, and is now a national brand, has selected a champion each month through nominations made by the community and recognized them in January—Dignity & Respect Month.
