    April Program to Focus on Diversity and Succeed 2020 Initiative

    The Southwest Area Human Resource Association is pleased to welcome Sahar Memon from Pakistan. Miss Memon is a foreign exchange student in Richardton, ND. Our chapter has invited her to speak to our members about her country as a diversity education program. She speaks 14 languages and will educate us on her country of Pakistan. Miss Memon said her main goal with her presentation is to help clear up misconceptions between both the US and Pakistan.

    Yvonn Weigel will also join our SAHRA meeting to speak about the Succeed 2020 program. Ms. Weigel  is the Project Coordinator for RESP.  As the Project Coordinator, she is responsible for directing programs and supervising facilitators in areas of College and Career Readiness, Transitions Programs, Academic Rigor and CTE Preparation, and using data as a means to show efficacy in those programs.  She works with Superintendents, Principals, and teachers from eighteen school districts within the Regional Education Association, as well as Project Coordinators across the state.

    2020 is a North Dakota education and workforce initiative that aims to improve students’ preparation for college and careers.  Ms. Weigel will educate us about the Succeed 2020 initiative, how it came to be, what they we do, the types of collaborations they are involved in and how this initiative helps our students and the workforce.  Ms. Weigel stated, “The students we are moving forward now are your future workforce and as a human resources group, I believe that would be of prime interest to you.  And who knows…  We may have a collaboration just waiting to happen as you know your workforce trends and you possibly have snapshots of what your workforce is lacking.” §

    Members and guests are welcome to attend and hear informative presentations on a variety of HR-related topics.
