Understanding Diversity

Understanding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe that diversity includes the individual differences among people from differing:

  • Social, racial, or ethnic backgrounds
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientations
  • Gender identities and expressions
  • Economic circumstances
  • Personal characteristics
  • Philosophical outlooks
  • Life experiences
  • Perspectives
  • Beliefs
  • Expectations
  • Physical abilities 
  • Aspirations

Each of these characteristics, both singularly and in combination, contributes to the richness of the Georgia Tech community.
