Disrupt HR & Diversity Professionals Conference
The Commission on Economic Inclusion’s sixth annual Diversity Professionals conference had a similar aim. This conference, held on August 6 at Corporate College East, showcased speakers and panelists from a variety of professional backgrounds who spoke about their views on the future of diversity in the workplace and how HR professionals can assist in transitioning a new generation of employees.
Engage! Cleveland Executive Director Ashley Basile Oeken had the opportunity to speak at both of these events. Her presentations highlighted the unique challenges that businesses and HR professionals will face as the Millennial generation enters the workforce and begins to expand their professional careers. She provided facts and figures about the Cleveland YP population and spoke inclusively about the trends and tendencies of this up-and-coming workforce.
