Join TEDx University of Pittsburgh for our second Salon. New this year, Salons will be a series of events meant to foster conversation around ideas worth spreading.


Sara Goodkind is Associate Professor of Social Work, Sociology, and Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Her research focuses on marginalized youth and the inequities they experience.

About the Talk:

Dr. Goodkind will speak on her research and findings from years as a teacher, mentor, facilitator, social worker, and much more. Goodkind's research focuses on marginalized youth and the inequities they experience. Much of her work examines social service programs and systems that work with young people, concentrating on young people's experiences in educational, child welfare, and juvenile justice systems and how these systems both construct and meet the needs of the young people they served. Dr. Goodkind's research also focuses on institutional biases and systemic inequities, tracing young people's pathways through systems and providing evidence and advocacy for policy change.
