We have endured a challenging past two years of COVID-19, a world Pandemic that has changed the very foundation of how we operate our businesses and how we work. Not only that, but we also know many of us have experienced our own stories of anxiety, loss, and fear, among a variety of other situations this pandemic has cost us as human beings. Yet, at Northwest Ohio Human Resources Association (NOHRA) we strive not to lose sight of what we are here to do. We are here to serve and support you as members, our business communities, and employees.
As we continue to grow, we face new challenges that demand new solutions to meet the diverse needs of rapidly changing markets, customers, and talent. As we face the unknown and navigate the new reality, leaders must be open to shifts in their approaches to address workplace issues and more-they must be willing to learn from those who bring different ideas, experiences, and perspectives.
Equipping our workforce with the diversity, equity, and inclusion skills needed to sustain our businesses into the future requires forward-facing and innovative thinking, focused on both local and global solutions. It requires the agility to adapt to the digital environment, commit to global citizenship, and engender new ways of working together to deliver relevant products and services and create spaces where a diverse body of talent can thrive.
This year's conference is the first time we are meeting together in public after the last two years of the pandemic. We were forced to find solutions to meet expanding Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging needs. We will have some courageous conversations and hear from people who are doing the work on topics that affect us all. You will hear about diversity in action, LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Groups (ERG's), Allyship, and creating ERG's in the workplace. Your takeaway will be how to Put the Human Back in Human Resources, to transition from diversity statements to diversity in action and transition from resignation to retention through building inclusive environments. We want to encourage you to welcome, humanize, empower, transform, and speak out!
Anyone with an interest in creating an inclusive workplace, including employers; DEI practitioners; HR practitioners; senior managers; business owners
