14th Annual Georgia Tech Diversity Symposium

Wednesday, September 14th, 8:00am - 3:45pm (John Lewis Student Center - Atlantic Ballroom)

In recent years, an increasing number of institutions and organizations have adopted principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values. Often, these organizations face numerous challenges in building diverse, inclusive, and equitable communities, as the organizational culture must shift to ensure that the lived experiences of those communities reflect these values. 

During the 14th annual Georgia Tech Diversity Symposium Illusions of Inclusion: Invisible Barriers to Belonging, we will explore and attempt to better understand the systemic and institutional challenges that organizations must overcome in order to create a more inclusive community.

Join us for a day full of important conversations with Georgia Tech students, faculty, staff, and renowned scholars who will share their thoughts and expertise on creating an environment where every person can feel a sense of belonging. This year's event will follow a hybrid format, allowing attendees to join us in person or virtually. To allow for social distancing, limited in-person seating is available. Once the in-person capacity has been reached, the form will only allow registration for virtual attendance. All registrants will receive a link to attend virtually.

Thursday, September 15th, 9:00am - 11:00am (Agnes Scott College)

Women in Green provides a space for leaders who are shifting the narrative on empowerment, access, and impact. We will gather female leaders for powerful discussions and networking that remind us that each of us is a person of great influence. That each woman is part of stronger whole, making an impact on building a brighter and more inclusive future.

This year, USGBC will celebrate individual empowerment through collective opportunities. Rising Collective reflects on the spirit of togetherness, of unity and the value of partnership during arduous times. At Women in Green, we’ll use our collective voice to help strengthen our work in an effort to rise farther, faster. USGBC is committed to doubling down on these concepts to help create a better, more equitable road ahead.

Thursday, October 13th, 4:30pm - 7:00pm (Elevance Health)

Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business is hosting a reception, panel discussion, and networking session to link companies with students that are passionate about incorporating sustainability into their careers. Students will learn about the skills companies need to advance sustainability goals and what their potential future employers are doing to tackle climate action in the state of Georgia. Attendees will also discuss current initiatives in sustainability in a “speed networking” session with lead industry members

Sunday, October 16th, 2:00pm - 6:00pm (Serenbe)

RayDay is an annual celebration that brings people together, encourages conversations and connections, and continues to spread the word about sustainability. It is a celebration of Ray Anderson's legacy. Imagine a one-day course on sustainable living, outdoors in a Serenbe country meadow with over 2,200 other classmates. It's tons of fun for the whole family, with great food and drink and more than 60 sustainability-focused learning booths, and much more.  It was Ray Anderson’s tireless efforts to make this a better world for Tomorrow’s Child that inspired the creation of RayDay.
