COVID-19 may have forced us to move our annual conference to a virtual setting, but it will not stop us from coming together to learn and focus on the most challenging issues for higher education and higher ed HR! With seven featured speakers, 24 live sessions, more than 30 on-demand sessions, opportunities for connecting with colleagues and HR solution providers, and more, you’ll leave this event with new ideas and new resources to help you address COVID-19 challenges, to help you be a more impactful leader as you create racial equity and social justice on campus, and to help you be a more effective HR leader during these challenging times for higher ed and our country. See the schedule for additional details.
The 24 live sessions plus the keynote and panel presentations have been pre-approved for 9.0 credit hours by both SHRM and HRCI.
Dr. Shaun Harper, a racial equity expert and executive director of the USC Race and Equity Center, will share his expertise in achieving equity goals and building sustainable cultures of inclusion and respect. Bestselling author Wes Moore will wow attendees with his remarkable personal story of overcoming adversity through education, embracing personal responsibility and emerging as an inspirational leader.
In the panel discussion, “Back to Campus: Challenges, Successes and Opportunities,” Susan Norton, vice president for HR at Augusta University, will facilitate a conversation between Provost Paul Gore and Chief HR Officer Lynn Bynum of Bellarmine University and President Ruth Watkins and Chief HR Officer Jeff Herring of University of Utah, who will share their perspectives around creating a safe learning and working environment for our students, faculty and staff in this new and different higher ed landscape.
