ISyE Alumnus Alex Berry: MVP on Teamwork, Mentorship, and Storytelling
Alex Berry is a 2017 alumnus from the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) and an expert in collaborative problem-solving. He was part of the group that brought in a large grant for the development of Georgia Tech’s Effective Team Dynamics Initiative (ETD), which equips faculty with skills to teach graduate and undergraduate students to work effectively in teams.
Alongside Mary Lynn Realff, associate professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering, Berry worked on research for ETD. Throughout his involvement with the initiative, he helped students to leverage their own strengths to create a successful team dynamic. He believes teamwork is important in other areas, too, such as mentorship. “I conceptualize almost my entire life around the concept of teams,” he said in the article.
Berry currently works for Intel and is the president of the Portland Georgia Tech Alumni Network. He’s also the founder of the social business Chocolate Milk Diplomacy, a career consultancy that empowers marginalized communities to tell their own professional stories.
