Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) at GTRI aims to enhance the Institute’s mission of solving the world’s most complex technical problems by creating a workforce with a shared appreciation for diversity, raising awareness around inclusiveness, and fostering a sense of belonging and appreciation for all members of our community.

Our Diversity and Inclusion goals include:

  • Position the Institute to cultivate innovation and cultural competence
  • Hold the Institute’s leaders accountable for promoting inclusiveness
  • Improve Institute’s representation of minorities and women

 

Diversity and Inclusion Working Council

The D&I Working Council is comprised of researchers, staff, and students here at GTRI. The GTRI Diversity and Inclusion Working Council will concentrate on five areas to measure impact and drive effectiveness:

  1. Metrics & Analytics
  2. Professional Development
  3. Recruiting and Retention
  4. Outreach
  5. Networking

 

Employee Inclusion Groups (EIGs)

Our EIGs provide resources that encourage connection and advocacy across the Institute. EIGs at GTRI will serve as employee led internal communities, providing personal connections for cohesive groups to assist the Institute in removing barriers. GTRI employees will create and define our Employee Inclusion Groups. GTRI will continue to encourage participation in the six Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) offered on campus by Georgia Tech Institute Diversity.
