Frequently Asked Questions
How does GA define Inclusion?
At General Assembly, we are inclusive. We celebrate and welcome diversity unbound by social hierarchies and collectively work to foster mutual respect, empathy, and common cause. We provide welcoming spaces for growth conversation and empowerment on our campuses and strive to build greater cultural competence within our community. We also commit to supporting opportunities beyond our walls to promote access, break down barriers, and empower future generations of leaders in the tech industry.
How does GA define Equity?
Equity is also an incredibly important concept at General Assembly. We define it as: “...an approach that ensures everyone accesses to the same opportunities. Equity recognizes that advantages and barriers exist and that, as a result, we don’t all start from the same place.” As you’ll learn as you get more familiar with who we are, creating opportunities to access tech careers is what General Assembly is all about.
How does GA define Diversity?
At General Assembly, we are diverse. We foster an international community comprising different backgrounds, experiences, identities, and perspectives. We work to ensure that everyone has a place at the table at General Assembly, regardless of race, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, disability status, religious affiliation, socioeconomic status, or political persuasion. We consistently leverage the diverse experiences of our community members to transform the narrative of diversity within the tech, data, business, and design communities. We also strive to ensure that the GA community is not just a reflection of the world today but of the world we want to see in the future.
