Diversity and Inclusion Initiative seed funding program awardees selected

The Diversity and Inclusion Initiative (DII@FSE) Task Force selected five awardees to receive funding under the DII@FSE Seed Funding Program.

Implemented as a component of the Fulton Schools’ Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Plan, the purpose of this program is to encourage projects that develop a culture where individuals feel included, valued and respected, and where different kinds of people can succeed. It is an opportunity for faculty, staff, academic associates and students to help individuals achieve their full potential in environments that are diverse, equitable and inclusive.

Congratulations to this inaugural cohort of awardees!
