We would like to welcome you to the fourth edition of the 2018 Georgia Diversity Council Newsletter. We are very excited about our past accomplishments and look forward to our upcoming events in the next year.

As this year comes to an end, we are excited to reflect back to a few of our favorite events in the fall. On October 1st, we hosted the DiversityFIRST™ Certification Program for the first time in Atlanta. This 5-day intensive course prepared professionals to create and implement highly successful D&I strategies for organizational excellence and a competitive edge in today’s global marketplace. The program blended theory and practice through intensive curriculum and offered ongoing professional development through the DiversityFIRST™ Graduate Network. Congratulations to all of our new nationally certified diversity professionals!

On October 19th, we also hosted another successful Georgia Leadership Conference. This annual event was held to educate and create local dialogue on diversity and inclusion and to celebrate the wide array of differences in our communities. Participants had the opportunity to attend a wide array of workshops and hear from dynamic speakers that increased their knowledge and understanding of a diverse workplace and community.

We hope you will have the opportunity to participate in one or both of these upcoming events next year and learn more about our organization, as we continue to champion, educate, and raise awareness about diversity in Georgia – one organization and one community at a time.
