Our Commitment to Diversity

At Goizueta, diversity is a commitment to nurture -- and challenge -- the unique perspectives that will shape the future of business. It's a commitment to innovate in traditional fields and embrace emerging insights. It is the foundation of our intentions and actions. It is one of the core values by which we lead.

Join us during Inside Goizueta to experience our inclusive community and discover the value of a small school in a big city.

We aspire to create and sustain a community at Goizueta that is the best place to study and work. In support of this, we are committed to be a destination where all are respected, supported and valued. Goizueta has taken several important steps towards achieving this mission, including the adoption of a school-wide diversity vision statement, the appointment of a director of diversity and community initiatives, and the creation of a diversity committee.

Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council

The mission of the DEI Council is to enhance community, ultimately helping Goizueta Business School to realize the vision of a diverse, equitable and inclusive place for every person without exception. The council is led by Jill Perry-Smith, Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives, and seeks to influence strategy, advise Goizueta Business School leadership, assess progress towards objectives, and share DEI related happenings. 

The Legacy of Roberto C. Goizueta

Roberto C. Goizueta was a Cuban-American visionary and role model who forged his way into corporate America to bring about unforgettable and lasting value. Our namesake was one of the great business leaders of the 20th century. During his 16-year tenure at The Coca Cola Company, Roberto Goizueta increased its value from $4 billion to $145 billion — ensuring its place among "America's Most Admired Corporations," as listed by Fortune. While building the business, Roberto Goizueta also contributed substantially to the progress of Emory and the business school. Throughout his life, Roberto Goizueta was driven by curiosity, intellectual courage, and integrity. We are honored to share his name and live out his values, which form the cornerstone of our educational approach and are fundamental to our mission to educate the best of tomorrow's leaders.
