    The Diversity Practitioner of the 21st Century: What New Practitioners Need to Know

    The MD SHRM State Council, Inc. is pleased to present the SHRM Business course, The Diversity Practitioner of the 21st Century: What New Practitioners Need to Know. This course offering is worth 7.5 business (strategic) HRCI recertification credits and focuses on the business acumen HR professionals need to either become strategic HR leaders or strengthen current skill sets.

    The field of workplace diversity and inclusion represents a challenging and exciting career path for those who seek to create positive changes in organizations. However, competent diversity and inclusion practitioners must be more than "passionate believers." They must be strong communicators who can effectively negotiate and influence people. They must be humble leaders who can interact and motivate individuals as well as groups. But above all, they must be savvy business professionals who are willing to initiate and steer organizational change. This one-day workshop will introduce attendees to the broad range of knowledge, tasks and competencies necessary to practice effectively in the 21st century. "The Diversity Practitioner of the 21st Century" involves an interactive day filled with cutting-edge research, best practices, and real-life case studies. Instructor: Robert Garcia, Director of Global Business Development, SHRM.
