Diversity Champion Awards Nomination Period Opens
When you think of diversity champions at Georgia Tech, is there a particular member of the faculty, staff, or student population, or a unit (e.g., college, department, school, or lab) that comes to mind? If so, please take a moment to nominate that individual or unit for the 2017 Diversity Champion Awards.
The Diversity Champion Awards recognize faculty, staff, students, and units who significantly demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Georgia Tech community. They will be selected and recognized at the Ninth Annual Diversity Symposium Awards Luncheon on September 6, 2017.
“This year’s Diversity Symposium theme is ‘Building Inclusive Campus Communities,’ and the Diversity Champion Awards will be given to campus community members who are advancing equity at the Institute, particularly at the intersections of race and class,” said Archie Ervin, vice president for Institute Diversity.
Award recipients will have demonstrated one or more of the following within the last three years:
- Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, particularly at the intersections of race and class.
- Leadership in building an inclusive campus community.
- Behavior that illustrates commitment to the inclusion of persons within the Institute who represent the diversity of the Georgia Tech community.
- Organized, conducted, and/or supported events and activities that promote cross-cultural understanding, respect, and inclusion of diverse individuals and groups.
Nominations will be accepted until May 26, 2017. For more information and the online nomination form, visit www.diversity.gatech.edu/diversitychampionawards.
