Pinderhughes Annual Diversity Lecture
The Pinderhughes Diversity Lecture Series honors the distinguished career of Professor Emeritus Elaine Pinderhughes, whose vision, voice, and compassion have enriched the Boston College School of Social Work since 1975.
Professor Pinderhughes was honored by the Council on Social Work Education with the Distinguished Lifetime Achievement in Social Work Education for her impact as a scholar, role model, and mentor to countless faculty and practitioners. Her 1989 textbook, Understanding Race, Ethnicity and Power: The Key to Efficiency in Clinical Practice, substantially changed the language of multiculturalism and human behavior in the practice arena and provided the rubric of culturally competent practice across human services disciplines.
