I’m excited to be attending the SHRM Diversity & Inclusion Conference and Exposition in New Orleans today; it’s the first time I’ve been able to attend this event and want to thank SHRM for inviting me to participate as a blogger. Rumor has it I might be doing some video interviews later today as well (stay tuned) so I best get my camera-face ready. Or something.
SHRM’s CHRO, Jeff Pons, kicked off the conference with a lively and interactive session where we had the opportunity (challenge?) of discussing unconscious bias at our tables. We also watched “Making the Unconscious Conscious” – a super video from Google (Life at Google). Go watch it. It’s worth it
And then, dear reader, I implore you to share it with your organizational leaders, HR colleagues and others who can benefit.
It’s an important conversation to have.
p.s. follow the conference hashtag #SHRMDiv through Wednesday!
