Sixth Annual TAG Diversity Leadership Awards




Event Information   

August 26, 2016 | 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM | Buckhead Club


 Integrating diversity and inclusion strategies into business practices has evolved from being “the right thing to do” to becoming a necessary way to remain competitive in an increasingly global marketplace.


The TAG HR and Diversity society is committed to honoring both individuals and businesses that have demonstrated exceptional efforts to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace, 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.

Our distinguished event includes lunch and time for networking. Prior to the awards presentation, several speakers will share their personal perspectives and experiences regarding diversity in the workforce.

Individual winners hailing from small, mid-size and large companies will be announced; small, mid-size and large companies or organization with exemplary practices in diversity and inclusion also will be honored.
