Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - Upskilling your HR Leaders
Virtual Working Group
October 29 -  1:00-2:30pm (CST)

A note on virtual working groups:  Sessions will be 90 minutes in length and this working group will be limited to 15 participants, allowing only one company member per company for this working group. The limitation is to ensure that all participants have adequate time to share thoughts and ask questions.  The smaller number will simulate an actual working group and make it more conducive for participants to see and interact with one another.  In most cases, we will also do a CAHRScast on the same topic so all partners can benefit from the learning. 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has long been a focus in the workplace.  More recently, companies have thought more about the role of belonging and equity for their workforces.  This is leading to new and evolving challenges for HR and line leaders in the workplace.  While some companies may feel they have arrived at some breakthroughs, many also admit to struggling to make deep, lasting change.

This session will focus on efforts companies are making to upskill HR’s D&I skills to help their organizations.  What are the core competencies needed for effective DE&I leadership? What are you doing in your company to develop future D&I leaders? What more do you wish you could do to upskill your HRBPs and others in the organization?

This session is geared for senior Diversity & Inclusion specialists or HR Business Partners who play a key role in the D&I space with their client groups.  

For security purposes, these Zoom working group sessions will be password protected and participation will be restricted to those participants who have been confirmed for a particular session.  Participation in these sessions is a great way to share and hear about key concerns, potential next steps and best practices, and to develop a network of HR leaders who are facing similar challenges for later one-on-one sharing and exchanges.
