Scheller College of Business Dean’s Office and Institute for Leadership and Social Impact Partner to Host Fall 2020 Conversations on Race, Equity, and Inclusion

Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business strives to develop a diverse and inclusive environment where every individual is engaged and feels respected, valued and safe. Fostering a diverse and inclusive community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni is a fundamental pillar of Scheller’s strategic plan, and we are committed to generating more meaningful conversation and action.  

To that end, Scheller is pleased to announce a line-up of speakers to more fully examine the topics of diversity and inclusion for all of our communities. Dean Maryam Alavi and the Diversity & Inclusion Speaker Series will partner with the Institute for Leadership and Social Impact (ILSI) to host an impressive line-up of speakers who will center their discussion around race, social justice, equity, and inclusion. The talks provide students and the larger community off-campus with the opportunity to learn from notable leaders and entrepreneurs from the corporate and social sectors.

“We are hosting these sessions in order to elevate the voices of those who can educate and enlighten the community around vitally important issues. These events are open to the public, and our hope is that Scheller and Georgia Tech students, alumni, faculty, and staff, along the wider business community will join together to engage in open, honest dialogue and learning around diversity and inclusion,” said Dean Alavi.

Several distinguished speakers include Dr. Beverly Tatum, President Emerita of Spelman College and the author of the best-selling book Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations about Race; Lori George Billingsley, Global Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at The Coca-Cola Company; and Pearl Alexander, Executive Director, Staff Diversity, Inclusion, and Engagement at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

All events will be held on Wednesdays from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sessions are virtual and open to the public.
