HR & DEI – An Integrated People Strategy
AGB Search Principals Monica Burton, Peggy Plympton, and Kim Bobby, in partnership with Lyn Harper, Senior Principal for Mercer, hosted HR & DEI – An Integrated People Strategy, a virtual breakfast session held to discuss how human resources and diversity, equity, and inclusion leaders in higher education are working together to foster a true sense of engagement and belonging among faculty, staff, students, and alumni. This was the fourth event in the recently launched series, Leadership Connections in Higher Education. The discussion was led by moderators Bobby and Mary George Opperman, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Cornell, and engaged Kimberly Goff-Crews, Secretary and Vice President for University Life at Yale, and Robert Sellers, Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer for the University of Michigan.
During the session, Goff-Crews and Sellers shared strategies and outlined the various conversations taking place around the hiring of outstanding faculty and administrators, the invisible work that is often expected of those in human resources and DEI offices, and the hierarchies at play that impact the progress on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging on campuses.
