The years of 2020 and 2021 will be remembered as a pivotal time for HR managers - a time when the myriad of challenges in our business operations and employee relations served as either roadblocks or opportunities.  As New York State returns to a tentative and new ‘normal’, the effects and challenges will not necessarily disappear.

Hence, this program will, through the format of a panel presentation, share the initiatives of three regional organizations who have creatively pursued new diversity and employee-based initiatives during the pandemic.  Their programs, all at various stages of development, are examples of resiliency, despite the challenges of the pandemic, an election year, and national racial tensions.  Their programs may provide inspiration and creative ideas regarding content, process, and daily realities, for other HR managers as they move forward in these unusual times.
