About the Council

GammaSAID is a student-led initiative with the potential for long-term talent pool transformation. Open to all students, the Council develops resources and presents programming year-round for the benefit of all 5,000+ members, providing the student voice on matters of diversity and inclusion. The Council offers a D&I framework and promotes best practices encouraging students to build D&I into everyday conversations, intentions, outreach, and events, including how to meaningfully engage other majors and groups on campus.

 

GIS Sustaining Partners have the exclusive opportunity to engage with GammaSAID in an advisory capacity through Chief Diversity Officer representation, creating a unique student-industry continuum and an important opportunity for resource sharing and meaningful action.

Diversity Partners are individuals and organizations throughout the industry who are committed to the diversification of the talent pipeline and whose critical support advances the Council's mission.

GammaSAID Unique Week

GammaSAID’s Annual Unique Week encourages students to participate in a social media campaign and reach out to other majors and student groups on campus in events and activities promoting diversity and inclusion.

September 20-26, 2020

Taking Place Wherever YOU Are!

This week gives us the opportunity to celebrate the diversity we have at UT Dallas, but also gives us the chance to encourage that diversity within our chapter. Our aim is to connect our members to the insurance industry, while using our resources to promote diversity and inclusion within the program.
