Seventh Annual TAG Diversity Leadership Awards

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.

The 7th TAG Diversity Awards honored the Game Changers whose achievements are changing the face of innovation in Georgia. Award recipients hail from large and small companies, startups and organizations and reflect the true diversity of the state's technology industry across a variety of sectors: Please see the list of Game Changers below. 

 

Hub Magazine featured the recipient of the TAG Diversity Leadership Award presented to Dr. Lonnie G. Johnson. Johnson Battery Technologies.
