Our Mission

GeorgiaForward’s mission is strengthen communities, unite our State and create a talent pipeline within Georgia. We work to improve the state of Georgia by acting as a catalyst to promote cross-sector, statewide conversations and partnerships by engaging young professionals and business, political, academic, and civic leaders.

Guiding principles:

We believe that Georgia’s challenges cannot be met by government, industry, academia or civil society alone. Improving Georgia requires all of our state’s stakeholders to communicate and collaborate in order to proactively address challenges and seize opportunities.

We believe that political rhetoric has masked an important reality: Each corner of Georgia, however different from one another it may be, is interdependent and rises and falls together.

We believe that visionary ideas and strategic solutions for our state can only be found through constant interaction between stakeholders and the most knowledgeable, innovative people.

GeorgiaForward brings together thought-leaders, decision-makers and stakeholders to address some of Georgia’s biggest policy challenges.   We seek to stimulate big-picture, statewide thinking that embraces collaborative, innovative and pragmatic solutions.
