Last Meeting of the Semester!
This month, Moore Pride is hosting a Diversity Panel and Dinner on April 14th, beginning at 5:30 PM in Sonoco Pavilion. As diversity and inclusion is a central issue for future HR leaders, but one that we don't directly study in our classes, we decided to merge with this event, meaning that your attendance that evening qualifies for attending a SHRM meeting (including the points you would receive). This talk should be extremely informative. Please see below for the info:
The Moore School Pride Diversity Panel and Dinner will be held on Thursday, April 14 at 5:30-7:30. The event is FREE and includes a panel of guest speakers from MetLife, the Harriet Hancock Center, Wells Fargo, and WLTX. Topics will include diversity and inclusion in the workplace with a focus on LGBT issues. A catered dinner will follow the panel discussion. Please register for the event here so we have an accurate headcount for catering!
