Global Diversity Awareness Month

October is Global Diversity Awareness Month, and our team in the Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives (GSI) invites you to celebrate the many types of diversity that enrich the Emory community.   

Emory University’s global work exemplifies our collective ability to walk in another's shoes and consider an issue, an obstacle, or a solution from a different angle. The events of the past year have affected nearly every aspect of our lives, our studies, and our work. The pandemic has displaced our regular work rhythms and has disrupted global research. At the same time, our gaze has shifted inward as we reckon with the historic and systemic inequities and injustices in our own country.

These challenging conditions make global work more important than ever before. The Emory community best achieves its lofty mission in the service of humanity when it incorporates and elevates the experiences, cultures, and perspectives of people from all around the world. Follow our #GlobalDiversity2021 social media campaign to learn about events and resources that reflect our commitment to international education and engagement and to promoting and supporting diversity, equity, access, and inclusion in our community.
