Inclusive organizations, led by empowered HR professionals, are where employees can thrive and organizations achieve success. To advance this work, the SHRM Foundation partners with companies and organizations through sponsorship. 

Partnering with the SHRM Foundation is mutually beneficial – we receive the support necessary to advance our mission and a sponsor receives partnership benefits to position itself as a leader in the HR profession.

Current Initiative: Integrating & Engaging Military Veterans

The SHRM Foundation is committed to inspiring and empowering HR professionals to build transformational and inclusive organizations where all workers thrive and organizations achieve success.

The SHRM Foundation has identified veterans as a vulnerable but highly valuable part of a diverse and inclusive workforce. With 65 percent of veterans leaving their first non-military job within two years, the SHRM Foundation is concerned that veterans are not being adequately recruited, retained, or integrated into the non-military workforce. 

This initiative was launched in 2017 and focuses efforts on building awareness of the value veterans bring to the workforce while increasing the skills and abilities of HR professionals to attract, hire and retain veterans in their workforce.

Headshot Studio at the SHRM Volunteer Leaders Summit

Annually, 1,000 SHRM chapter and state council volunteer leaders gather at the SHRM Volunteer Leaders Summit to network, collaborate and attend development sessions to strengthen their chapters and state councils. During the summit, volunteers are invited to sit for a professional headshot. As a headshot studio sponsor your company will host the lounge and connect with volunteer leaders during this positive, much-appreciated experience. 

Scholarship Sponsorship

The workforce is changing and HR professionals are leading the transformation to build inclusive organizations. 

In 2020, the SHRM Foundation will award more than 300 scholarships, including 34 scholarships that are directly funded by generous individuals, companies or SHRM chapters and state councils. 

Sponsoring a scholarship is a great opportunity to:
  • Directly support a student or HR professional with the opportunity to learn, grow and develop in the HR profession.
  • Demonstrate your commitment to empowering students and HR professionals, who are the future of the HR profession.
  • Connect your corporate or personal brand to the education and development of passionate students and HR professionals

Sponsored scholarships are fully managed by the SHRM Foundation - from promoting your scholarship, collecting applications, judging, and selection, to awarding of scholarship funds. As a sponsor, we will connect you with your annual scholarship winner and showcase your dedication to the future of HR by sponsoring a scholarship to support an HR student or professional.
