Diversity is a key driver of innovation and a critical component of being successful on a global scale.
Tech companies that leverage diversity are better positioned to create the products and solutions that meet the needs of a diverse marketplace.
The TAG HR and Diversity society is committed to celebrating diversity and inclusion in Georgia's technology industry.
Diversity and inclusion in the workplace consists of embracing all employees – regardless of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, military status, sexual orientation, age, disability or culture – to achieve positive outcomes at work and in the community.
