Laura L. BieremaA Statement on COVID-19
By Laura L. Bierema, AHRD President

The Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented in our lifetimes. The pandemic has caught many of us unprepared and unsure of what to do. As human resource development leaders, we are inclined to help others. We need to look after ourselves as well, if we are to be of any help to our families, students, colleagues, clients, organizations, and communities.

The 2020 Atlanta AHRD Conference Site Team carefully monitored the situation up to and during the conference, implementing recommended Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all who attended. I want to recognize the efforts of University of Georgia colleague Dr. Caleb Han in particular. Caleb personally researched guidelines and shopped for items to keep us safe — such as air and hand sanitizer, job aids on hand washing, and alternatives to shaking hands. We all owe Dr. Han our gratitude for his care of our health and well-being at the conference.

I am also proud of the team of volunteers who helped craft a COVID-19 statement on behalf of AHRD that was approved by the Board of Directors prior to the conference. This statement was shared on the AHRD website and conference app. Here is the statement in full:

The Academy of Human Resource Development extends its support of our friends, colleagues, and all those affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have deep concern about the global health and well-being of our colleagues and their loved ones, particularly where there has been diligent effort to contain the outbreak and reduce its impact. The outbreak is affecting our colleagues worldwide, and AHRD offers our caring thoughts and solidarity to everyone impacted by this public health emergency. We also support the scientists, public health professionals, and medical personnel around the globe who are fighting the virus and making valiant efforts to battle the challenge using scientific evidence.

Volunteers working with me on the statement included Site Team Chair Caleb Han, Program Chair Sarah Minnis, and new Board Member Jie Ke.

The COVID-19 threat shifted quickly into a pandemic after the 2020 AHRD Conference ended in Atlanta. If our conference had been scheduled even a week later, we would have likely cancelled it—that is how quickly this situation has changed, challenging multiple systems including educational, service, manufacturing, transportation, and especially health care.

Recently our UFHRD colleagues were faced with a difficult decision regarding the 2020 Conference in Budapest. The event has been cancelled and rescheduled in Budapest for 2021 in light of the ongoing COVID-19 threat. I am looking forward to the conference next year, and hope to see many of you there. It is too early to tell whether the Asian AHRD Conference scheduled for November 2020 in Kuala Lumpur will proceed as scheduled.

You may be wondering what you can do during these unprecedented times. My community has passed a “Shelter in Place” ordinance and many communities and states are following this strategy. My hope for you is that you will do the same and ensure the safety, health, and well-being of your community. Here are some other thoughts on how to stay informed, calm, engaged, and HRD-centered:

AHRD 2043: Will YOU Help Lead HRD through Research Now and into Perpetuity?

Submitted by Laura L. Bierema, AHRD President

It was with a sense of history and pride that I assumed the presidency of the Academy of Human Resource Development at the close of the 2020 Conference in Atlanta. I extend a heartfelt thank you to the many, many volunteers who made the conference possible including the Program Team, Research and Conference Engagement Team, UGA Site Team, Executive Team, and all who volunteered to chair tracks, review submissions, moderate sessions, lead SIGs, and made other countless contributions to the conference. Thank you.

During the conference, we were encouraged to consider “Inclusion and Activism in an Age of Intolerance" as a theme uniting our Town Hall Forum, Opening Reception, and Keynote Presentation. AHRD aspires to be an inclusive organization and we have made progress over the years. Despite our intentions, our leadership and master narratives have been shaped by a relatively non-diverse cast of presidents. To recap, AHRD has been led by 15 presidents since its formation in 1993. Fifteen of them have been white, 10 have been male, and the ranks have been mostly straight.

It is an honor to follow the 14 presidents who have given tirelessly and generously to AHRD, facing different issues with each term. I am especially proud to follow the legacy of AHRD’s four women presidents: Drs. Karen Watkins, Darlene Russ-Eft, Wendy Ruona, and Julie Gedro. With my installation as the 15th president, and 5th woman president, 33% of AHRD’s presidents have been women. It is worth noting that women have led the organization three out of four of the last terms, during a period when AHRD has been challenged to recruit members and raise money.

My goal as president is to help the organization progress from where it stands today. We have much to be proud of during our 25+ year legacy and I intend to help position the organization to thrive now and for its 50th anniversary in 2043. Presidents Ruona and Gedro did a marvelous job developing a strategic plan that we will continue implementing. To remain healthy, relevant, and viable, we need to:

  • Continue implementing our strategic plan;
  • Diversify the AHRD presidency and community;
  • Live into the racially healed, inclusive and equitable community we talked about during the 2020 conference;
  • Expand the diversity of the Board of Directors;
  • Mentor members into leadership; and
  • Continue and expand mutually beneficial partnerships.

As emphasized during my remarks at the 2020 Conference Presidential Dinner, my strategy for leading ARHD to prosperity in 2043 is go “Back to the Future.” When Dr. Dick Swanson assumed the presidency in AHRD’s early history in 1996, he listed three priorities for his presidency as 1) Members, 2) Money, and 3) Moxie. As I reflect on the task before AHRD in 2020, it is not much different than it was 24 years ago, although I forget what Dick meant by “moxie.” My three priorities as your president are: 1) Meaning, 2) Members, and 3) Money.

Meaning matters to members who join to share and learn from HRD research. We must continue exploring what it means to Lead HRD through Research and critically assess how effectively we realize this vision. We must fully engage and collaborate with practitioners to enjoy the strong, mutual bridges between research and practice that we all need to stay relevant, robust, and engaged in issues that matter to organizations, communities, and society. Engaged scholars and practitioners help us extend and expand our HRD community through not only research, but also collaboration, education, and learning. To do that, we must continue challenging HRD’s metanarratives and ensure we are making space to welcome our full scholar-practitioner community, now and in the future.

Members are closely connected to the meaning that AHRD delivers to practitioners and scholars. Without members, we will not sustain the AHRD community. I am committed to listening to and retaining current members, working with the board and our current members to recruit and retain new members, and generating enthusiasm for our vision of Leading HRD through Research. I hope to hear from you about how we can retain you and recruit your colleagues. You can reach me at bierema@uga.edu.

Finally, as much as we crave meaning and need members, we cannot do either without the money that funds our opportunities to create in-person and virtual communities of HRD practice. The evening I assumed the presidency, I also announced the launch of an AHRD Capital Campaign—“AHRD 2043”—to lead us toward fiscal independence by the time AHRD turns 50. Many of us do not like talking about money. I am not one of them. The AHRD Board has been in the tough position of needing to pass negative budgets. In other words, we do not have the budget to cover everything we are trying to deliver to you, our members. I want to reverse that trend and need your help. Neither I nor the AHRD Board is launching this campaign without doing our part. Here are the measures we are putting in place to ensure the fiscal health of the organization we all love:

  1. Committing Board “Give or Get”: During 2019, the Board approved a new expectation for all Board members. Starting in 2020, each Board member will be required to donate or raise $500 per year for AHRD.
  2. Soliciting Sponsorships: I am actively pursuing sponsors to support the great work of AHRD. The UGA Site Team took on this task in earnest during 2020 and managed to double the budgeted sponsorships for the conference. The Conference Team will continue setting high goals for sponsorship and invites you or your organization to join us as a sponsor if you are able.
  3. Expanding Planned Giving: We will more actively encourage members to remember AHRD in their wills through personal encouragement and making information readily available on our website.
  4. Donating: I do not ask you to do something I am not willing to do myself. To that end, I am putting the money where my mouth is: To launch the “AHRD 2043 Capital Campaign,” I donated $2,043 during the Presidential Dinner to lead the way and give a symbolic nod to ensuring the AHRD legacy continues to see its 50th birthday and many more years.

I am honored and excited to serve as your 15th president and look forward to helping position AHRD to Lead through Research now and in perpetuity. Will you join me?

21st International UFHRD Conference Postponed to June 2021

Submitted by Dr. Maria Cseh

In light of recent developments around the global COVID-19 outbreak, the 21st International UFHRD Conference (10-12 June 2020 Budapest) has been postponed to June 2021. In postponing the conference, we are following the Hungarian Government’s policies that were declared in this state of emergency, which prohibit all indoor events with 50 or more people—until further notice.

It was a very sad and hard decision, but together with the leadership of UFHRD, it is impossible to know if and how this situation will change in the near future. At this time, the health, safety, and well-being of all members of our community is of paramount importance.

We are following the re-scheduling of all the June events (e.g., the European Football Championship) and we will communicate the exact dates of the 2021 Conference as soon as possible. Please note that all registration fees for the 2020 Conference will be refunded.

We would like to thank all the Stream Leaders, Reviewers and all Colleagues who supported us for the past year. We hope that all of you will continue to work with us to make the 2021 Conference in Budapest a memorable one.

We are sending all of you our best wishes for health and well-being in these uncertain times.

Final Thought

By Tomika W. Greer, AHRD Board Member and Digest Editor

Tomika GreerIn the midst of this global pandemic, I encourage all of you to do what you can to protect yourself and the people around you.

As HRD professionals, our AHRD Standards on Ethics and Integrity remind us of our social responsibility as HRD professionals:

“HRD professionals are aware of their professional responsibilities to the community, the society, in which they work and live, and the planet. They work to minimize adverse effects on individuals, groups, organizations, societies, and the environment. They understand that a healthy economy, healthy organizations, and a healthy ecosystem are intricately interconnected. They apply and make public their knowledge of learning and performance in order to contribute to human welfare. They are concerned about and work to mitigate the causes of human suffering.”

This is all to say that we have a professional and a personal obligation to do our part in mitigating the effects of COVID-19. Be safe. Take care.
