Your Workplace, Your Story

2021 Workplace Policy Conference

HR’s voice is so very important in shaping workplace policy, culture and public policy inside and outside the Beltway. Our voice and expertise on the workplace should reach not just our colleagues, employees and leaders, but also policymakers.

 As HR professionals, you have opportunities to create better workplaces and a better world. Take pause and think about how many people your role in HR impacts—together SHRM’s HR professionals—impact the lives of 115 million employees, who are the constituents of today’s leading policymakers.

During this session, I will help you identify how best to voice YOUR story and how you might effectively deliver that message to have an impact. Policymakers are decisionmakers that will impact our workplaces for decades to come. We deserve to be in the room where decisions are being made.

 By telling our stories, HR can better educate policymakers on the workplace and on the reality we face to effectuate meaningful change.”
