Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Georgia World Congress Center Authority, serving our customers and supporting our team members means recognizing and celebrating their unique perspectives and experiences. We create opportunities to bring people together by building awareness, providing educational tools and resources, and developing annual special events. Combined, these efforts serve to enhance lives in lasting ways and are the foundation for our support of a more inclusive society and workplace.


Established in 2021, GWCCA's JEDI Council, an acronym for justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, is an internal resource group that seeks to inspire team members to choose behaviors that demonstrate civility and respect; identifies pathways for celebrating distinct skills, experiences, and perspectives; curates access to resources and opportunities; and serves as ambassadors to not only the Authority’s championship campus and surrounding communities, but the hospitality industry at-large. JEDI’s commitment to foster a more equitable culture transcends business as usual and results in enduring relationships with customers, communities, and each other.
