We are delighted to announce that we have formed a group on LinkedIn called EEO and Diversity Professionals. We created this group as a virtual gathering place for EEO, diversity, conflict management (i.e., ADR) and human resources professionals to exchange perspectives and learn about the latest developments in our fields. The group is founded on the notion that EEO, diversity, HR and ADR professionals share common interests and that their success is often predicated on their ability to collaboratively address complex human resources issues by creatively integrating their EEO, diversity, HR and ADR expertise.
We recognize there are a number of superb LinkedIn groups covering these important topics albeit in a highly specialized format. While we believe these groups are extremely valuable, and we plan to continue our active participation in these other groups, we want to fill what we believe is a gap by creating a place where subject-matter-experts from EEO, diversity, ADR and HR gather to get the latest news from our fields and participate in in-depth discussions. Our conversations will be broad and inclusive to be of interest to professionals in the private and public sectors; those who are employed by firms or agencies as well as those who are self-employed. We’ll tackle problems, discuss cases, and share employment and contract opportunities. We will ensure there is plenty of interactivity by publishing routinely informative and thought-provoking blogs. We’ll also invite experts from these fields to post blogs, comment on the latest rulings or directives from EEOC, MSPB, OPM, courts, and other regulatory bodies, and share best practices. We hope this gathering place will generate tremendous synergy, advance unique ideas, and afford comprehensive solutions to problems we encounter in our respective fields by applying our combined knowledge, experience and expertise.
So, if you enjoy exchanging ideas, engaging in robust discussions and sharing perspectives on human resources topics involving EEO complaint processing, developing and executing successful diversity and inclusion strategies, and managing conflict in the workplace, this is the group for you.
