SHRM and Nonprofit HR Make Commitment to Social Sector

New partnership to create inclusive programming in community and space for the nonprofit sector

Alexandria, Va.— Today, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) announced its partnership with Nonprofit HR to offer social sector-specific content during this year's SHRM Annual Conference & Expo (SHRM22), held June 12-15 in New Orleans at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Nonprofit HR will present five concurrent sessions at the conference in a track entitled "Nonprofit HR."

The sessions for CEOs, C-suite leaders, HR practitioners, and talent management professionals are designed with the unique challenges and dynamics of nonprofit and social impact organizations in mind and will focus on social impact leadership imperatives for a post-pandemic economy, equity in compensation, benefits and people management practices, leadership, evolving needs of hybrid workforces, culture, disruption, and inclusive employer branding.

"Nonprofit mission-driven organizations are an integral part of society and the world of work. We aim to deliver inclusive programming for organizations across diverse missions with partnerships that create community and space for the nonprofit sector," said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. "The push for equitable people management practices is vital and makes good business sense."

"This partnership is an opportunity to help raise the profile of social impact organizations, their unique people management needs, and Nonprofit HR's 22-plus year commitment to the sector. The timing could not be better, considering the sector's continued growth, importance to society at large and its need for the best in talent management and human resources practices," said Nonprofit HR president and chief executive officer Lisa Brown Alexander.

The SHRM leadership team have been working on the partnership with Brown Alexander, along with Nonprofit HR managing director of marketing & strategic communication, Atokatha Ashmond Brew and Nonprofit HR vice president and managing partner and Patty Hampton since October 2021.

"We encourage all nonprofits to consider sending their key HR and talent management decision-makers to our annual conference. After the tremendous couple of years, we've all lived through, it's time to face the future, and we'll do it better as a unified profession and community," said Taylor. Brown Alexander also said, "SHRM plays such a critical and global role in the HR and talent management profession. We are honored to have this unprecedented opportunity and look forward to this new chapter in social sector HR history."

The SHRM 22 conference lineup features over 200 speakers including the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, and Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive. Both in-person and virtual attendance will be available. HR professionals, CHROs, people managers and students will have the opportunity to engage on best workplace practices, discuss new data surrounding the great resignation, learn about the latest workplace trends and benchmarking, and explore how to build a better workplace culture

The theme of SHRM22 is Cause the Effect, encouraging business and HR leaders to boldly bring about the changes they want to see in the world of work. To learn more, please visit
