HRAM Recognizes Volunteers of the Year
The Human Resource Association of the Midlands (HRAM; www.hram.org) named two members as co-winners of the 2017 Volunteer of the Year award.
Linda Mack and Terry Rogers-Womack were recognized for their efforts as the organization’s diversity committee co-chairs over the past three years at HRAM’s chapter program on April 3. The award is given annually to a member or members who have made outstanding contributions to HRAM during the year.
“This committee is the most engaged of all of our committees,” said Mike Bojanski, the 2018 board president. “Terry and Linda promoted engagement from the rest of the committee and redefined diversity beyond the typical – but important – gender identity, transgender, and glass ceiling issues.”
During their tenure, Mack and Rogers-Womack developed a symposium-style series of events dedicated to addressing diversity issues such as those mentioned above plus issues such as sex trafficking and helping the incarcerated and recently released prison populations transition to the workforce.
“The diversity symposia are consistently sold out,” said Virginia Kiviranta, the 2017 board president, “not only to human resource professionals but to members of the community and business owners, too. Their level of dedication, consistency and ingenuity was due to an out-of-the-box collaboration with a variety of partnerships that really elevated their programming. It was incredibly cutting edge.”
Mack founded Mack Consulting in 2012 to provide an array of business solutions including human resource services. Rogers-Womack works in talent acquisition for First Data Corporation.
