10th Annual Diversity Symposium

The 10th Annual Diversity Symposium theme is “Building Inclusive Communities: The Path Forward – Together.” On the heels of a challenging year for our campus community, this event will explore both the progress made and the challenges that remain in the interrelated areas of academics, health and well-being, and student and community life. 

As we continue the conversation on the 10th 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.

The morning sessions will include an opening keynote from Charlayne Hunter-Gault, an award-winning journalist and author, and panels on inclusion in higher education. The Diversity Symposium Awards Luncheon will include Diversity Champion Awards and Faces of Inclusive Excellence presentations followed by a luncheon keynote from Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro, professor and chair of gender studies at the University of Southern California. 

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.
