Join Team Empower

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

Team Empower is a group of individuals who come together to help empower HR professionals to build inclusive organizations. 

Members of Team Empower make an annual donation of $30 or more and pledge to support the SHRM Foundation's annual inclusion initiaitive. 

Members can choose to support the initiative by:

  • Volunteering at a local community service activity with a SHRM Chapter or State Council 
  • Delivering and discussing SHRM Foundation resources with people in your personal and professional network
  • Presenting about the inclusion initiative 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 on our website, receive Team Empower initiative updates throughout the year, 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.
