Join Team Empower

Turning obstacles into opportunities takes teamwork...
Join us to make a difference!

Team Empower is a special group of passionate individuals who are dedicated to helping empower HR professionals to build inclusive organizations.

Members of Team Empower make an annual donation of $30 or more and pledge to share about the SHRM Foundation's mission and inclusion initiatives with their friends, family, and colleagues.

Sharing about the SHRM Foundation's mission and inclusion initiatives includes: 

  • Volunteering at a local community service activity with a SHRM chapter or state council 
  • Sharing SHRM Foundation resources with your personal and professional network
  • Presenting about inclusion challenges at your workplace or to local organizations such as your Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, Kiwanis, or at your religious institution 
  • Tweeting about resources or research or sharing on your Facebook page

Members of Team Empower will be recognized throughout the year, receive Team Empower initiative updates, wear a special Team Empower ribbon at SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition and SHRM Volunteer Leaders' Summit and will be invited to hear how their work makes a difference during our annual webcast each fall.
