Every year at AHRI’s Inclusion and Diversity conference, HR professionals gather to network with one another and hear from the keynote speakers and panel members. But 2017’s event felt different. Because of the events of the last 18 months, where the electoral successes of Trump and One Nation left many feeling that inclusion and diversity took a back step, this year’s conference had added poignancy.
The HRM TV film crew attended and were inspired to edit together these three lessons that capture some of the themes of the event. The first is on how HR can react to adversity, provided by none other than the CEO and managing director of AHRI, Lyn Goodear. The second is a rundown of the hallmarks of a successful inclusivity program as outlined by Richard Griffiths, general manager workforce relations and strategy, NSW Police Force and Adam Davids, Learning and Development Director, CareerTrackers. Finally, several of the speakers from the conference explain why networking that’s focused on inclusivity and diversity is crucial.
