SHRM defines diversity as “the collective mixture of differences and similarities that includes, for example, individual and organizational characteristics, values, beliefs, experiences, backgrounds, preferences, and behaviors.”
In today’s competitive economy, more organizations are investing in a diverse workforce as a competitive advantage and are turning to HR to lead the charge.
Diversity and Inclusion Resources
Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of modern business strategy. HR Indiana SHRM is dedicated to helping HR professionals and practitioners across the state implement strategies to further diversity and inclusion by providing valuable resources and opportunities, like the Midwest Diversity, Disability and Inclusion Awareness Conference in Indianapolis.
