Inclusion 2020:  Getting Vets to Work

by  Judith Tavano

Diversity itself comes in all shapes and forms. Sometimes overlooked for its potential, the veteran population enriches workplaces by its gender diversity, ethnic diversity, and skill diversity -- to say the least. Understanding the lingo associated with employment of veterans is a challenge for many. Similarly, growing a leadership team that understands the demands on employees who who practice dual employment can be a struggle. The SHRM Foundation is a leader in workplace initiatives to employ both veteran and current military members. To aid the HR team, SHRM provides numerous aids and has launched a certificate to demonstrate proficiency in veteran employment to those who are vested in veteran employment success. The Veterans at Work Certificate, developed for HR professionals, hiring managers, and front- line supervisors, is a multi-faceted program from the SHRM Foundation and brought to you with generous support from Comcast NBCUniversal.

This session will be lead by Judith Tavano, Special Project Coordinator for the  University of Arkansas Department for Diversity and Inclusion. 

Inclusions 2020 has approved by SHRM for 1 PDC and by HRCI for 1 general credit.  

Echols Conference Center is located on the east side of the Echols building on Waldron Road.
