Dean Stephanie Ray is the Associate Dean of Students/Director of Diversity Programs at Georgia Tech, and is known regionally for diversity consulting, presenting workshops, and delivering keynote addresses. While at Georgia Tech, she helped to initiate Women’s Awareness Week which led to the creation of the Women's Resource Center and organized Georgia Tech's National Coalition Building Institute Diversity Training Team. In addition, she created Disability and Diversity Week and Religious Awareness Week. She advises the Diversity Forum and is the advisor to the newly created Speech and Debate Team.

 

Dr. Aby Parsons joined Georgia Tech as the inaugural director of the LGBTQIA Resource Center in April 2014. Prior to becoming Director of the Resource Center, Dr. Parsons worked with the Office of LGBT Life and the Office of Health Promotion at Emory, and volunteered extensively with the DeKalb Rape Crisis Center and Georgia Equality. Her career has been spent providing support, opportunities, and mentorship to students, from serving as a literacy educator and case worker in UK secondary schools to directing summer leadership programs for high school Girl Scouts in North Carolina and California. Social justice, community service, and diversity are at the foundation of everything she does, working with allies to create a safe and inclusive campus for people of all gender and sexual identities.
