Roundtable Discussion: "Student Views on Inclusion in the Global Workplace"

Free and open to public

With Atlanta’s growth as a global business hub, corporate initiatives on diversity, equity and social justice are intersecting in new ways with their mandate to cultivate a culturally competent workforce.

A new sense of urgency seems to have gripped the business community with the racial reckoning after George Floyd’s death and the inequities spotlighted by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.

As one of the most concentrated higher education hubs in the U.S., Atlanta is graduating thousands of increasingly diverse future workers who demand bold action on these crucial issues. And with a worker shortage already taking hold in some sectors, how well companies can meet students’ demands for meaningful social action in their workplace will become a competitiveness issue.

Are companies ready for this new recruitment reality? Are students empowered to make their voices heard? Or does a diversity divide persist?

Join us for a lively, honest conversation with Atlanta-area students, educators, and advocates.
