In Fall 2020, the Georgia Tech Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council was formed to identify, discuss, and understand challenges and opportunities in the practice of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The first goal of the Council was to guide the inclusive process that culminated in Georgia Tech’s DEI Strategic Plan.
The process engaged a broad cross-section of leaders to create a 10-year blueprint including 22 actionable strategies with shared ownership and accountability within units across Georgia Tech. It outlines the steps we are taking to fortify the minds of current and future leaders with equanimity, courage, and resolve to lead with heart. It is a story where the spirit of inclusive leadership and innovation enables people of all backgrounds and stages of life to learn, grow, and contribute to responsible, equitable technological and human progress.
