ABOUT THE PROGRAM & PRESENTER

Join CHRA, our HR colleagues, and special guests as we celebrate the strides being made in the pursuit of workplace DIVERSITY and INCLUSION by local businesses in the Baltimore area! CHRA’s James W. Rouse Diversity Award will be presented just before the education program. For more details on this distinguished award, click here

Following the presentation of the coveted James W. Rouse “Excellence in Diversity” Awards, we will convene in a “fireside chat” with a panel of local HR professionals and business leaders to address some burning questions about the next phase of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, such as:

  • Why is diversity, inclusion and equity important to you personally and professionally?
  • Has the current social, cultural, and political climate made your job more or less difficult? How?
  • How best should our leaders respond to employee feedback about how D & I initiatives really impact them?
  • How can D & I be a priority for companies when businesses have other "big issues" to deal with, such as market risks, tightening budgets, and highly competitive industries?
  • Can junior or mid-level HR or business professional get their organization to implement D & I programs? What strategy should they use?
  • Where have you experienced resistance to expanding your approach to diversity, inclusion and equity? How did you respond?
  • What outcomes has your organization realized through diversity initiatives or best practices?
  • What are the next steps in your D-I-E efforts? What are your plans for the future?
