If you are landing on our page for the first time, let me start off by saying a warm welcome and thank you for visiting. We are the Genessee Valley Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (GVC) representing 9 counties of NYS. Our volunteer Board of Directors and committee members are dedicated to the shared mission of providing educational programming and events to over 400 members and 400 at-large members.
HR, business, and community leaders play an important role in shaping the future of workplace development and addressing critical staffing challenges. This is why we are excited to announce the formation of the Mentorship and Workforce Development Committee, and invite you to a groundbreaking information session that aims to be a turning point in approaching recruitment, diversity, and mentorship.
The mission of this Committee is clear: to empower local job seekers often underrepresented in the job market to thrive in their careers. We recognize the immense value that a diverse talent pool brings to an organization and the broader community. That's why we are taking a bold step in developing mentorship opportunities for individuals with disabilities, those who are re-entering the workforce after mental health or substance use disorder treatment, and individuals transitioning after their involvement with the criminal justice system.
But we can't do it alone. Together, we can strategize, innovate, and collaborate to develop actionable solutions that will benefit your organization and the community. Your expertise, influence, and involvement can make a world of difference in the success of this transformative initiative. By attending our pilot meeting, you will join an exploratory conversation shaping the foundation of an ongoing committee dedicated to this cause.
