A Commitment to Diversity

The Georgia Tech Research Institute believes diversity is essential. GTRI relies on a diverse workforce to become the world’s pre-eminent applied research and development organization. It takes all of us.

Respect for differences is a key part of our culture and vital element of our success. At GTRI, excellence is achieved by synthesizing contributions from people of varied ideas, backgrounds and perspectives.

The objective of GTRI’s Diversity Initiative is to enhance GTRI’s sense of community, raise awareness, educate and foster a greater appreciation for diversity.  

GTRI's commitment to diversity is absolute. It allows us to attract, develop and retain the very best talent available. Our commitment also ensures that we forge the relationships necessary to continue our dynamic growth.

Set your sights on Tech! That’s the message the Women’s Recruiting Team at Georgia Tech is sending to girls across the country.”





Name: And Still We Rise: Women’s Stories of Challenge and Triumph

Synopsis: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”~ Maya Angelou

Celebrate Women’s History Month as women of Georgia Tech share stories of challenges, struggles and triumphs through the use of dramatic monologue, narrative, and poetry. In addition to hearing powerful stories, you will also be given an opportunity to create and share your own 2-minute monologue related to your personal story or the story of a woman who has made a lasting impact on your life.

In addition to the stories, we will display pictures of you or any female force in your life. If you would like for us to include your picture in our looping slides (to be shown at the beginning and end of the session) please send photos for consideration (in .jpeg format) to by Monday, March 17.
