The Vision of the Oklahoma City Human Resources Society (OCHRS) Diversity Council is to foster a culture of diversity and inclusion by positively influencing our OCHRS members, their companies, and our communities.
The Mission of the Oklahoma City Human Resources Society (OCHRS) Diversity Council is to increase awareness and understanding of all facets of diversity and inclusion by providing education and resources for OCHRS Members. The Diversity Council strives to make a positive difference in our companies and our communities by sharing best practices in diversity management; highlighting significant diversity issues; and providing support and education on matters of diversity and inclusion.
The OCHRS Diversity Council defines diversity as an assortment of traits including, but not limited to, legally protected and unprotected characteristics such as national origin, language, race, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and family structures.
We define inclusion as an environment that recognizes each individual employee and strives to connect them to the organization by fostering an environment that promotes diversity throughout all levels of the organization. An inclusive culture empowers individuals to participate in the achievement of organizational goals and to contribute to their full potential.
