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 2018 Diversity Champion Awards.
Each year, the Diversity Champion Awards recognize those who demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Georgia Tech community. They will be honored at the 10th Annual Diversity Symposium Awards Luncheon on September 5, 2018.
“This year’s Diversity Symposium theme is ‘Building Inclusive Communities: The Path Forward,’ and the awards will be given to campus community members who demonstrate leadership in building an inclusive community and advancing a culture of inclusive excellence,” said Archie Ervin, vice president for Institute Diversity.
Award recipients will have demonstrated one or more of the following within the last 10 years:
- Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Leadership in building an inclusive campus community and advancing a culture of inclusive excellence.
- Organized, conducted, and/or supported programs, events, and activities that promote cross-cultural understanding, respect, and inclusion of diverse individuals and groups.
Nominations will be accepted until June 1, 2018. For more information and the online nomination form, visit www.diversity.gatech.edu/diversitychampionawards.
