This week we’re featuring our favorite SHRM speakers so those in attendance can learn a little more about who they are and their session through a Q&A session. Today we’re featuring Dawn Kelley.
Dawn Kelley is the Human Resources Manager for the City of Modesto. She is a certified HR Professional and has served in HR roles for more than 25 years providing a high level of expertise specifically skilled in leadership development, coaching/ supervision, employment law, and California uniqueness! Dawn has a reputation for being a strong, empathetic leader. She spent several years serving on her local Executive Board for Central Valley Human Resources Management Association.
She has a determination to meet people where they are. To help people be heard and be welcome in their workplace. A passion for people, a passion for storytelling, a passion for life…. an engaging speaker, a voracious laugh…all descriptions people would use to identify her. In September 2018, she was a featured TEDx speaker in the Central Valley speaking on Parental Resilience. In her “spare” time Dawn works with start-ups as their HR Consultant.
