11th Annual Diversity Symposium

Wednesday, September 4, 2019
8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Georgia Tech Global Learning Center

Overview

The 11th Annual Diversity Symposium theme is “Georgia Tech's Racial Diversity Journey: Recognizing Our Past, Acknowledging Our Present, and Charting Our Future," which will explore the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Georgia Tech community.

As we continue the conversation on the 11th anniversary of this event, the Diversity Symposium will provide a forum for robust, informed discussions among faculty, staff, and students, focusing on how we can support the Institute’s commitment to an inclusive, safe, and healthy community.

On behalf of the Office of the President and Institute Diversity, we invite all members of our campus community to participate and contribute to the Diversity Symposium discussions as we work together to build “One Georgia Tech,” which values and respects every idea and contribution.


Goals
  • To create a campus climate and culture where diversity is valued and embraced.
  • To increase senior-level leadership engagement with faculty, staff, and students about the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) to our future aspirations.
  • To provide a forum for creative exchange among institutional leadership, faculty, staff, students, and DEI experts as a way to open the lines of continued conversation.
