Diversity is at the heart of human resources. ASHRM seeks to foster awareness and appreciation of workplace diversity issues among HR professionals, their employers and other business leaders.
This issue is of utmost importance in Anchorage, where we lead the nation in student diversity. The local school district has a student population where almost 60% of the students are minorities speaking over 94 languages. Our community represents a wide variety of peoples, cultures and religions to be celebrated and incorporated in diversity and inclusion initiatives in local organizations.
Every month we celebrate one aspect of diversity, while each year we present at least one recertification pre-approved program dedicated to diversity. We also participate in special events in the community.
