Human Resources Executives Special Interest Group 

Leveraging Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace 
February 22, 2018 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
Hear how member companies have approached diversity and inclusion within their organizations and what outcomes they have achieved. 

UWEBC member companies are paving the way for the future of diversity and inclusion in our workplaces. Join us to hear how these organizations have fostered environments focused on diversity and inclusion and have brought together aspects of marketing, human resources and community relations to make visible strides toward equity. Session will include opportunities to bring questions forward and share strategies, challenges and opportunities with one another

We have two outstanding women joining us in the morning to discuss their organizations' perspectives and efforts in regard to D&I. Assistant Vice Provost Sherri Charleston from the Division of Diversity, Equity and Educational Achievement at UW-Madison will be on hand to talk about the university's efforts to create a more welcoming and inclusive campus environment for faculty, staff and students as well as students' D&I expectations as they leave college and head into the work force.

We will also have Angela Russell, VP of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at CUNA Mutual talk about her company's short and long-term strategies to support and implement D&I programs at CUNA Mutual. Both Sherri and Angela will stay for the afternoon to participate in a panel discussion with the group, along with other UWEBC member companies.

Participation in this SIG is limited to director, VP and SVP level employees who may, in turn, bring an HR subject matter expert along with them to the meeting. For more information or to find out how to participate in this group, please contact the facilitator, Beth de Garcia.
