    Opening Remarks: Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., President, Society for Human Resource Management

    Developing and Implementing an Outward Mindset

    Mindset is how we see others and the world. It is the lens through which we see our work, relationships, and our world. From an inward mindset, we focus only on our own goals and objectives, without consideration for our impact on others. An outward mindset allows you to see new possibilities and solutions.

    Presenter: Corey Leneker, MPA, Executive Leadership Coach & Leadership Consultant

    Diverse Teams Make Better Products, Services and Profits

    Many diverse talent candidates are undervalued and underestimated. Steven Matly knows about being underestimated. After dropping out of high school, he became an entrepreneur who turned $5,000 into businesses generating six-figures. Matly then launched his own diversity and inclusion firm that helps organizations hire diverse talent and better understand how, “if we don’t consciously include, we will unconsciously exclude.” Steven’s story will motivate you to commit to developing a more diverse talent pool and better teams.

    Presenter: Steven Matly, Founder & CEO, SM Diversity

    Talent Acquisition & Remote Hiring: The New Normal

    Building a pipeline of talent was a challenge before our new normal; building a solid stream of top talent is now even more challenging. Using new tools to scout talent is critical to identifying the best active candidates. Leveraging remote tools to facilitate the hiring process can pose unique challenges but can also create a new and innovative way to ensure a successful hire.

    Presenter: Shereen R. Rodrigues, MBA, PHR, Talent Acquisition Manager, Otak

    Motivating and engaging employees at all levels continues to become more difficult. This experienced panel of HR professionals will share their best practices and strategies for ensuring your employees are actively engaged in their roles and with their teams. Our panelists will share innovative ways to navigate the new landscape and engage remote employees.
    Presenters: Malika Klingler, PRR, Margaret Henning Farber, SPHR, CCP, InSignia Federal Group, Dena Patton, MS, DELL
