Georgia Tech Leadership Conference (GTLC)

As part of Georgia Tech’s primer leadership conference series (along with the Women’s Leadership Conference and Black Leadership Conference), The Georgia Tech Leadership Conference (GTLC) is a full morning and afternoon of leadership training open to all Tech undergrad and graduate students. The conference is redesigned each year around a new theme which ODK believes resonates with each generation of students. Based upon the theme, one to two keynote speakers are selected from notable Tech alumni or faculty or from prominent leaders in the Atlanta area. The conference also included six to eight workshops led by premier figures from industry, academia, and the government.
