A&F Staff Culture Advisory Council

Workplace culture sets the tone in every organization. To help create and promote a strong and healthy workplace culture at Georgia Tech, several units and colleges on campus have implemented a Staff Culture Advisory Council. To date, these councils have been successful in improving staff morale; providing more opportunities for staff to develop within their careers and serve in leadership roles; and empowering staff to share their experiences in an open and trustworthy manner. 

This fall, Administration and Finance (A&F) created its own Staff Culture Advisory Council to serve as an advisory committee to leadership to:​

  • Create a collaborative environment​,
  • Build workplace relationships​,
  • Foster employee wellbeing​, and
  • Promote equity, diversity, and inclusion.

  • Participate in and/or lead ongoing projects.
  • Promote respective unit level staff engagement activities​.
  • Propose initiatives and/or programs to support the Council’s overall mission​.
