PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

 

Greetings to our Current and Prospective Members!!

Welcome to the National Association of African Americans in Human Resources (NAAAHR) Atlanta Chapter’s website! It is my great honor and pleasure to serve as president and to share information about our great chapter.

NAAAHR is a dynamic and growing organization which exists to provide a forum where African American Human Resource professionals can gain information and experience, share best practices, and network.

CHAPTER NEWS

Your Board of Directors has given thoughtful consideration to introducing a chapter meeting fee to our members to offset our operational expenses. In order for the organization to remain sustainable well into the foreseeable future and continue to provide a meal along with high quality programing, it is necessary that we implement a small member fee for monthly meetings. Please see here for more details.

   NAAAHR Atlanta's HR Certification Spring Study Group kicks-off on Tuesday February 17th, 2015 and will meet weekly until Tuesday April 28th, 2015 (11 weeks) from 6-9:30pm.

Addressing Unconscious Bias Now That We've Reached Parity
   

Barry Callender

Executive Coach and Consultant with Korn Ferry will explain and describe how unconscious bias manifests in organizations using a tool called Vectors™. 
Upon establishing the presence of Vectors in participants' organizations the group will explore its impact and strategies to overcome it. 
The final segment will focus on the role of HR/TM leaders in creating higher levels of parity while counteracting unconscious bias.


~ The power of Unconscious bias depends on the degree to which one differs from the organizational norm
~ Differing from the organizational norm is more subtle than the traditional barriers of age, race and gender but often attributed to them
~ Unconscious bias discussions are in vogue, what about parity in representation
~ Aligning our Talent Management strategies   
 

This Presentation has been approved for 1.5 HRCI credits.
