The Diversity Core Leadership Area (CLA) is overseen by a Diversity Director who monitors and evaluates state and local activities concerning diversity issues, and works with chapter diversity directors to encourage involvement at the chapter level. The Diversity CLA is part of SHRM's Diversity and Inclusion Initiative to impact diversity management. Diversity management is defined by SHRM as, "The comprehensive organizational and managerial process for leveraging diversity and achieving inclusion that maximizes the potential of all employees.” 

This page is designed to give you resources and information to help you manage diversity and inclusion in your chapters and workplaces. The SHRM Diversity CLA page on the Volunteer Leader Resource Center is an excellent source of information and resources. Also, SHRM members can access their diversity & inclusion toolkit here.
