    Event Description:

    Join ACEC Georgia's Inclusion & Diversity Task Force and Chair, Emmanuella Myrthil, with HNTB for a dialogue honoring LGBTQ+ History Month!

    LGBTQ+ History Month is a month-long celebration of the history of the diversity and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community and the importance of civil rights movements in progressing gay rights. The observance was created by Rodney Wilson, a history teacher at Missouri High School, in 1994. The following year, LGBTQ+ History Month was added to the list of commemorative months in a resolution forwarded by the General Assembly of the National Education Association. October was chosen as the month of observance as the National Coming Out Day already existed as a holiday on October 11th. LGBTQ+ History Month allows the opportunity to extensively learn about the history of the LGBTQ+ movement, and what factors and measures will be successful in building communities and providing role models who will best represent and address the issues of the LGBTQ+ community. 

    We will have three dynamic speakers joining us to share their insights on LGBTQ+ Culture. 

    Speakers Include: 
    Eric Ganther, AICP, Transportation Planner, HNTB (pronouns: he, him) 
    Veronica JenkinsCo-Founder & CEO, HIVE Talent Acquisition Firm (pronouns: she, her) 
    Lisa Thomas, AVP, PE, Program Controls Manager, Atlanta PMC (pronouns: she, her)
