The Missouri State Council of SHRM is committed to fighting racism, injustice, and inequality by equipping HR professionals across the state with the resources needed to navigate difficult conversations, situations, and scenarios.

As HR professionals it is our responsibility to create inclusive and equitable work environments free of microaggressions.  Here are several resources that you may find helpful as we all continue to listen, learn and act.  We encourage you to follow us on social media as we continue to share resources.  Please also connect with your local SHRM chapter if you are not already a member to get support from HR professionals in your community.
