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.

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.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday season and I also wish you a very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!  2017 was a great year for me.  I really have enjoyed and learned so much as the Diversity & Inclusion Co-Director with the Garden State Council SHRM (GSC-SHRM).  This year, I am also the Diversity & Inclusion Director for the North Jersey-Rockland SHRM Chapter, as well as the GSC-SHRM 2018 Conference Social Media Chair.  All good things and all offer great learning experiences.

Two words that are often inadvertently confused are “diversity” and “inclusion.” 

A great way to remember the difference is this: If diversity is being asked to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance.  

If you’re an employer looking to create a diversity and inclusion (D&I) program, the next logical question might be: “If we’re having a party, who’s handling the invitations?”

The 2017 SHRM Diversity & Inclusion Conference & Expo in San Francisco was without a doubt an amazing experience that I will never forget.  SHRM posted my first blog about the conference on October 24. This is my second blog about the conference.

I’m sitting in the airport following the last session of the SHRM Diversity and Inclusion Conference on twitter, and mulling over my takeaways as I get ready to head home and do the D&I work. I learned so much, and each session is worthy of its own blog post, so I expect I’ll be processing this conference on this blog for a while. But there were some common themes that held the conference together for me.

Attending the SHRM Diversity and Inclusion Conference & Expo has truly been an amazing experience.  I first must thank the Garden State Council SHRM (GSC-SHRM) for sending myself and my Co – Chair to this amazing conference.  It has been nothing but a fantastic learning experience.

I’m in San Francisco getting ready for the SHRM Diversity and Inclusion conference that starts tomorrow, and I’m thinking about what diversity and inclusion mean.

The word hacker, for most, conjures up images of a dark figure in a hoodie hunched over a keyboard. 

However, as Joe Gerstandt and Jason Lauritsen shared in their 20th Annual HR Technology & Exposition Conference session The HR Hacklab: What New HR Tech Solutions Are Needed Now?, hacking in the workplace has an entirely different meaning.
