TOPEKA -- The Washburn Student Chapter of Society for Human Resource Management is talking about the vision for Topeka and Shawnee County. In a town hall meeting format members of the SHRM student chapter at Washburn University are taking part in a discussion to learn what role the human resource profession plays in a community.
This discussion will be held Wednesday, February 23 from 3:00 till 4:00pm, in the Vogel Room of Washburn University’s Memorial Union.
William Beteta, executive director of Heartland Visioning, is the guest speaker and will facilitate the discussion with the students.
“The town hall format is intended to engage the students,” said Dan Schultz, SHRM Chapter President. “We want the students to think about their role as a citizen of a community while in human resource management.”
Heartland Visioning will use this opportunity to listen to what the students have to say. “We are interested in what is on the minds of the students,” said Beteta. “We are always interested in what people have to say about our community’s future, and in particular students because they represent our community’s future.”
