KEYNOTE: HR’s Search for Humanity 

Why you’ll want to attend. Despite sophisticated advances in technology, data, and healthcare, we have fallen short when it comes to valuing other humans. The world is at an inflection point. Human rights abuses, the rise of nationalism, the emergence of hate, chronic disparities based on race, age, sex, religion, and sexual orientation are occurring across the globe. All of this lands on your HR doorsteps every day – directly or indirectly. Dr. Jarik Conrad joins us from San Diego to offer a better path forward.   


What’s it all about?

  • Discover how human resource professionals can be the drivers of a more sustainable and humane society, advancing how we live and work.
  • Learn how corporate social responsibility must take on new meaning, and how HR can advocate for that new role.
  • Discuss how a better understanding of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) is core to this transformation.
