The SHRM Jacksonville Inclusion & Diversity Core Leadership Area goal is to provide HR Professionals in the SHRM Jacksonville chapter with information that will help them ensure that their organizations:
- Develop a workforce that has the skills, competencies and behaviors in order to succeed in today's and tomorrow's workplace.
- Provide tools that maximize the potential of today and tomorrow's workforce by helping individuals to develop their skills to become more competitive in our local and global economy.
- Achieve balance between organizational fit and diversity through information and education.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resources
"Now, more than ever, the voices of our Human Resource professionals are needed in organizations across the nation. As HR leaders, we have the professional, social, and ethical responsibility to be concerned with matters that impact our organizations, workforce, members, and community. We also have the unique responsibility to advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and stand in the gap of inequality, discrimination, and aggression of any kind." see our full chapter statement here
