GMA SHRM DEI Resource Page

GMA SHRM’s mission is to offer members a variety of professional development opportunities and an environment in which to share ideas, experiences, and building lasting relationships.

Recent events have brought many challenges.  Along with concerns about health came social unrest around race and equality.   The social unrest and calls for awareness continue and shine light to the importance of being human and kind.

Our Diversity Committee is proud to announce our DEI Resource Page is now live! This is a work in progress page we will continue to build and keep the resources up to date and relevant on a quarterly basis.

We certainly welcome any feedback/suggestions, requests on what content you’d like add, and any contributions you may have!

Email Director of Diversity Committee Mary Vesely at mary.vesely@fairwaymc.com.




Are you aware of the Madison HR Chat function on our website? This is a great way for members to share information and ask questions of others.

Please check out this short video which shows you how to use the chat function, which is free with your membership!
