Diversity and Inclusion

Committee Leaders

Our Vision

To provide programs and resources that promote diversity as a strategic component of MVHRA overall mission which is critical to our individual and organizational success as Human Resources professionals.


Promote an environment that recognizes and reflects the Miami Valley community's multi-culturalism in membership demographics, program topics and community involvement activities.


Education – Provide our members with tangible skills and competencies that can be used in developing initiatives and managing diversity in their workplaces. 

Information – Provide communication on diversity-related topics through newsletters, programs and workshops. Develop a presence on the MVHRA.org website for diversity information. 

Awareness – Understand that diversity is an integral part of Human Resources management. Diversity must be reflected in the philosophy, policies and practices of MVHRA.
