Diversity & Inclusion

Looking for real-world solutions on diversity and inclusion? LWHRA can help!

More and more, organizations are realizing that valuing the diversity of their customers and employees and creating an inclusive environment not only go hand in hand, but are critical for their business success long-term.  As HR professionals we have the opportunity to help shape cultures that promote welcoming and respectful environments for all individuals, and LWHRA is here to support you in those efforts!

Based on feedback from participants at the 2017 LWHRA Symposium in February, our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) committee is carrying your ideas forward. We will soon be offering ways to connect and share resources, advance your D&I knowledge, and help you achieve change in your organizations.  Check out our D&I Committee's Page for an overview of our plans for this year, as well as, how you can get involved.  In the coming months, keep an eye out for upcoming events and activities.

Join Us! - We'd love to include you!
