A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS, BUT A MENTOR IS PRICELESS

Many institutions are facing the same challenge in HR: do more with less resources. Where do you turn when you need HR advice? How do you find a network of seasoned, diverse HR professionals? What are some ways to access resources specific to higher ed HR without breaking the bank? The key takeaways from this session are how to leverage a mentoring relationship and the resources available through programs like CUPA-HR’s Wildfire and Emerging CUPA-HR Leaders programs.

MAXIMIZING HR’S ROLE: SUPPORTING COMPLIANCE AUDITS AND STRATEGIC INITIATIVES 

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has indicated that it plans to audit higher education institutions more frequently in 2020. However, many HR practitioners are unfamiliar with their institution’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) obligations under OFCCP’s laws. Through a case study from a university that was recently audited, this session will provide practical tips and tools to maximize HR practices and initiatives around EEO.

ENGAGING THROUGH REAL TALKS FOR REAL INCLUSION

REAL Talks (Respectfully, Engage, and Listen/Learn) is a powerful new tool to challenge unconscious bias while equipping organizations with the platform and space to have interactive conversations about topics impacting us inside and outside of the workplace. As more campuses grapple with questions surrounding the limits of free expression and divisive speech, employees benefit from learning from each other’s perspectives and experiences, enabling more effective engagement and partnership. In this session, you’ll learn how to incorporate REAL Talks to challenge unconscious bias and teach respectful dialogues.
