Diversity and Inclusion Outreach - The committee frequently promotes, partners and attends functions with various local diversity-related events and their respective organizations. Establishing and maintaining relationships with these diversity-related organizations creates an opportunity for joint collaboration among organizations that have similar focuses, leading to the promotion of diverse constituencies. Such opportunities are discussed at Diversity Committee meetings, in an open-forum setting where fresh ideas are encouraged and explored.

Diversity and Inclusion Initiative - Initiatives to develop a wealth of resources, toolkits and articles about diversity for HR professionals available to members of AHRMA.
