Dear Members, Partners, and Supporters:

This is a thank-you letter to everyone who has championed our vision through their partnerships and member support. In January of 2017, we launched this chapter, and we would not have experienced such a stellar beginning without you. This is also an invitation letter to anyone who has yet to experience the delight of being in the company of brilliant, diverse HR practitioners, corporate professionals, and entrepreneurs whose common goal is to continuously evolve the way they can describe and demonstrate their success.

W.E.B. DuBois said, “Education is the development of power and ideal." It’s time for us to enhance our power and model our ideal by going “back to school” with expanded development and networking events. We also have some surprises in store, so check back regularly for career opportunities, mentoring information, and community support initiatives.

Finally, we look forward to reinforcing our power through our partnerships with the New Jersey Chapter of the Black MBA Association (NBMBAA-NJ), Garden State Bar Association and the National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA), with whom we have begun a promising alliance.

We truly are a force when we’re together. So, get in here!!

Leading During Covid-19 and Beyond

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are in varying stages of preparedness and readiness. Leaders may be uncertain about how to best lead and employees may be apprehensive about the future during this unprecedented time. HR professionals play a critical role in helping leaders navigate and in reshaping the future of work.

•Discuss the new paradigm of work, the new normal and its impacts

•Understand the key workplace considerations that are essential in managing the “human” side of the change

•Reveal how to maintain a connected culture

•Share practices and recommendations to increase greater focus, resilience and engagement.
