GC diversity committee to share gathered data, input



“The committee as a whole developed a work plan that would include developing strategies and objectives around the overall goal of the committee and engaging the Georgia College community and the greater Milledgeville community in a dialogue about the needs of the plan,” Womack said. “We developed a website survey to solicit ideas about the plan in the spring of 2013. In addition, the month of September was designated as the month for open dialogue about the plan.”

The committee plans to hold a follow-up forum from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22 at the Collins P. Lee Center. The purpose of the upcoming forum is to share the end results of the September public forums and how vital information from the forums was to the actual outcome of the plan. 

“For each of the four areas, we have actions, dates of completion and groups that will carry out the work. I will provide a very detailed follow-up with a PowerPoint presentation and maybe some handouts,” Womack said. “We’re giving people the opportunity to see what we’ve crafted. The community can respond during the follow-up forum; we want to make sure people feel included and they know we heard them and their input was very valuable.”

The finalized action plan is expected to be complete within the next couple of months before it’s presented to Dorman for final review.

“The goal of the plan is to build a sound infrastructure,” Womack said. “We’re very thankful of the support we’ve received. This is just the beginning.”
