Rachel Hopkins serves as the Director of Equity and Belonging at the Pittsburgh Glass Center and Contemporary Craft. Over the past four years, her work has invited her to facilitate interracial and intergenerational learning and dialogue centered upon antiracism; to design, implement, and evaluate culturally-responsive and equity-centered partnerships within universities, community organizations, and schools in the region; and to cultivate liberatory spaces of study, dialogue, and action with and for Black youth and educators at the University of Pittsburgh.

Rachel has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology with a minor in social work. She is currently engaged in doctoral studies at the University of Pittsburgh Education Policy PhD program. She is also an affiliate of the Collaboratory Against Hate and the PA Educator Diversity Consortium.

Rachel is deeply committed to antiracism, liberatory pedagogies, and sociopolitical action. She sees art as an invitation to think critically, to imagine and create a new, and to be free.
