My first interview for the 2018 SHRM Diversity & Inclusion Conference (#SHRMDIV) that is being held in Atlanta less than 2 weeks was with Joe Gerstandt. Click here for the Q & A with Joe. My next interview is with Elena Valentine.
The SHRM Diversity and Inclusion Conference (#SHRMDiv) is fast approaching and I am very excited and thankful for the opportunity to attend the conference as a SHRM Blog Contributor. Although this will be my first #SHRMDiv experience, I have to admit that I am already impressed by the excellent selection of topics and speakers.
Politics is a sensitive subject in any setting. Today, disagreements seem even more polarizing and divisive, even at work. How much political speech is too much at work? Can expressing a political opinion hurt your career?
“We often forget the ‘I’ in the D&I conversation. The challenge is in having a culture where all employees feel included. It’s a major investment to bring talent into your organization, so why bring them in if they’re not happy when they get here? You’ve got to get the inclusion part right.” – Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, SHRM CEO
Diversity and inclusion is top of mind for HR practitioners and employees alike. If we think about diversity as who is walking through the door, then inclusion would be the next part of the employee experience. With the recent focus on workplace diversity trends, it’s important to not forget how important it is to create an inclusive working environment.
I consistently see organizations with unnecessary barriers slowing their D&I efforts down or blocking them altogether. Want to move forward? Here are six opportunities to consider. I will unpack each of these further in following posts:
This will be my last blog before SHRM18. I wanted to share my experience with Diversity Stride 2018:
I had the great privilege to present an unconscious bias presentation with Judy Elliott-Pugh, SHRM-CP, PHR, MBA. Judy and I are the Diversity & Inclusion Co-Directors with the Garden State Council-SHRM (GSC-SHRM). We presented to the North Jersey-Rockland SHRM Chapter. We wanted to explore unconscious bias by discussing what it is and how we address it in our everyday lives and in our workplaces.
The United States Congress created the Days of Remembrance as our nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust. This year, Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) is today, Thursday April 12, 2018.
SHRM board member David Windley discusses how unconscious bias can derail workplace diversity efforts.
Today’s workforce and workplace trends are rewriting the traditional rules of work. Everything we’ve ever believed about how, where and when work happens is rapidly changing. And this is driving organizations to quickly reassess the ways in which they will design jobs, organize work and develop employee skill sets so that technology and people can work together for future growth.
Today’s we are facing significant new technology and cultural forces, from artificial intelligence, workforce fluidity, and hyperpersonalization, to the demand for equity and inclusion. These phenomena are reshaping the future of work, resulting in three megatrends for HR to prepare for in 2018: people-first AI, highly individualized leadership, and achieving breakthrough diversity and inclusion.
