Diversity Equity & Inclusion

SuncoastHR is proud to support the awareness, appreciation and advocacy of diversity, equity and inclusion where it has a positive impact on our membership, local organizations, workforce and the community at large. We recognize that our differences both visible and non-visible - make us a stronger organization and partner within our community, and we are committed to promoting a culture of inclusion that values and leverages different perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences. Diversity, equity and inclusion contribute to the long term growth and success of SuncoastHR, and are a core pillar of our Chapter strategy, programs, resources, and partnerships.

Message from SuncoastHR Regarding Diversity, Inclusion and Social Injustice

As a professional chapter of SHRM, SuncoastHR embraces diversity and differences among us: of culture, background, perspective, beliefs, personality, and thought. We are a progressive chapter dedicated to social responsibility and justice. We stand in solidarity with the outrage over the senseless killing of George Floyd, and others. We also share the frustration of all persons of color who are still so often the subject of prejudice, discrimination, and unfair treatment.

Our Chapter's goal is to focus on providing the best learning environment and discussion platform possible, leading to our ability to provide guidance to our leadership and perform at our best on the job. Additionally, our goal is to enhance our learning to incorporate more opportunities to expand our understanding surrounding racism, inequality, and injustice, both known and unknown.

We may not be able to change the world, but we must do our part to improve, impact, and influence our small corner of it.
