Description:The year 2020 fundamentally changed the way we approach HR. To that end, HR teams are now in a unique position to overhaul their processes and experiment with a raft of new solutions to support new ways of remote working. Tech trends that were once on the distant horizon are now an everyday reality — but deciding which will have the greatest impact on your institution can be overwhelming. In this session, we’ll explore how technology can support remote teams and ease the transition back to campus; why dynamic careers sites are becoming a must-have for modern institutions; how AI can assist in DEI initiatives; why recruiters are beginning to think like marketers; and how HR can become a strategic business partner and get stakeholder buy-in for new technology solutions.

Description:Gaps in the representation and pay of women and racial/ethnic minorities have long been a topic of concern in higher ed. Add in the pandemic and its effects on the economy (historical data show us that economic recessions hit women and minorities the hardest), and the conversation and needed action around these disparities becomes even more pressing. In this session, we'll explore whether the higher ed budget decreases of the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacted women and minorities in terms of representation and pay. We'll also examine which facets of the workforce need attention to ensure that gaps do not widen during the recession. This session is sponsored by VirginPulse.
