Black History, Black Excellence

In honour of Black History Month, Georgian is proud to share stories from just some of the many Black Georgian alumni, employees, donors and community partners who have shaped our region and beyond.

While our commitments to equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging (EDI&B) require year-long dedication, February offers an opportunity to further amplify the inspiring stories, voices and accomplishments of Black colleagues.
