Ms. Bennett-Alexander participated in SHRM's task force, which described it's purpose as engaging in an "activity that SHRM believes will be the foundation of future growth and influence for the diversity and inclusion fields. SHRM has taken on the challenge to lead the development of organizational standards for the human resources and diversity professionals. Our goal is to drive the creation of diversity and human resource management standards in the US." Ms. Bennett-Alexander will discuss the purpose of the standards being proposed by SHRM, the process of coming up with them, the areas they address and the upcoming international standards in the pipeline. 

Ms. Bennett-Alexander's accomplishments are too many to list here, but if you are interested in learning more about our speaker, please feel free to visit her Terry College of Business website:
