Combat-exposed veterans’ re-entrance into workplace among topics
Alexandria, Va. –
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) will hold its
2009 SHRMDiversity Conference and Exposition October 19-21 in San Diego, California at the Sheraton San Diego hotel.
More than 400 diversity management professionals will gather to discuss current workplace diversity issues, including recruiting top talent as the economy improves, re-integrating combat-exposed veterans with disabilities into the workplace, and employment law compliance.
“The recession’s impact on workplace diversity is affecting businesses worldwide,” said Dr. Shirley Davis, director
of diversity and inclusion initiatives at SHRM. “The SHRM Diversity Conference provides businesses information critical to addressing today’s most pressing issues, from federal and state law compliance to rebuilding a diverse staff after layoffs.”
Keynote speakers include: bestselling author and business consultant
Kevin Carroll; former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce
Carlos Gutierrez; and
Dr. Samuel Betances of diversity training consultancy Souder, Betances & Associates.
Among conference highlights is the Tuesday keynote panel discussion featuring chief diversity officers (CDO) and CEOs, moderated by Dr. Davis. The panel discussion is reformatted for 2009 – given last year’s overwhelming interest – to include CDO/CEO pairs providing diversity insight and perspective.
The conference will focus on topics including:
A new, two-day pre-conference seminar for mid-to-senior level diversity practitioners – the
“SHRM Diversity & Inclusion Strategic Leadership Program” – will launch during 2009 conference.
The seminar focuses on how to formulate, launch, lead, and measure the results of a diversity and inclusion initiative in organizations. Dr. Quinetta Robertson, a professor at the Villanova School of Business, and Eric C. Peterson,
manager of diversity and inclusion initiatives at SHRM, will lead the seminar.
