The South Texas Human Resources Symposium (STXHRS) is the leading educational event for Human Resource Professionals in the Central and South Texas areas.

They represent public, private, and governmental sectors, including for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.

Keynote Speaker: Devin C Hughes

Title: Real World HR Strategies to Build Authentic, Inclusive Workplaces that Reflect Our World, Not Our Biases.

Summary of session:

While basic research has shown that diverse and inclusive teams are better at problem-solving and fostering a global outlook, Human Resources professionals still struggle with building strategies for the modern workplace that maximize diversity at all levels. When advanced from a human and humane perspective, diversity challenges can become valuable opportunities for workplace inclusion, increased productivity, stronger team collaboration, and competitiveness amongst your market peers. This webinar will help Human Resources professionals understand the varying levels of inclusion, understanding D&I concepts and terms, brainstorm how changes to your processes can leverage diversity, and demonstrate how strategic D&I learning can build truly inclusive workplaces. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the prevalence and cost of poor employee well-being and unhealthy culture. 
  • Understand how Positive Psychology and Social-Emotional Intelligence impacts employee         performance and organizational health. 
  • Learn key strategies to improve communication and trust throughout your organization.
