The Society for Human Resource Management has bestowed its Merit Award on its DePaul chapter for providing superior growth and development opportunities to members during the 2020-21 academic year.
Outgoing president Jennifer Salazar, who just completed her MS in Human Resources, says the chapter organized events throughout 2020-21 that included a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion panel of human resources industry experts that drew more than 80 participants. The group also sponsored workshops on resumes, interviewing and how to conduct a data-informed job search, networking opportunities with faculty, staff, alumni and recruiters, and a book club.
Beyond programming, Salazar says, the chapter also promoted the professional benefits of SHRM within DePaul and established a social media presence.
