Diversity Committee Update
It’s hard to believe that we are now moving into the FALL season of 2016 as we enter the month of August!
SAVE THE DATE: November 16, 2016 (7:30-9:00am) …The exciting news before us is upcoming “Diversity Summit” currently under development to be held during our monthly HR Tampa meeting at the Centre Club! Complete with moderator, a panel of diversity and inclusion experts, audience participation with questions from the audience. If you’d like to be involved or have any possible topics of interest, please let us know.
The Veterans Initiative continues to make a difference and the impact on the community progresses into a busy time with the following activities:
o MacDill AFB Shadow Day – This event has been delayed until new command has been installed on base as we anticipate a date coming by year end.
o Shadow Day at Camp Blanding Joint Training Center – HR Tampa will be represented for this event on August 22, 2016.
o US Chamber of Commerce & Hiring our Heroes Job Fair (9/16/16 from 0830-130pm) at the Bill Young Armed Forces Reserve Center. Registration is required at www.uschamberfoundation.org and if you would like to meet with veterans one-on-one for to assist them with resume review, skills translation techniques, etc., please let me know.
Have a wonderful fall and let us know how we can assist you with your diversity and inclusion efforts, along with any veteran-related events!
