    Event Description:
    ACEC Georgia members are invited to join the Inclusion & Diversity Task Force, chaired by Emmanuella Myrthil with HNTB.

    The ACEC Georgia Inclusion & Diversity Task Force (I&D Task Force) was created in 2016 to advance the goal of increasing diversity and promoting a culture of inclusiveness within Georgia's engineering industry. The I&D Task Force seeks to raise awareness, offer guidance to firms and individuals, and create meaningful dialogue, engagement, and activities around inclusiveness, equity, and diversity. The I&D Task Force is open to any employee of an ACEC Georgia Member who is interested in engaging in these issues.
