Innovation Grants

SHRM Foundation Innovation Grants provide SHRM state councils and chapters with grants to drive big, bold and innovative ideas to drive change in their communities. Further information about this year's SHRM Foundation Innovation Grants will be posted in late 2020. "If I can make a difference in my community, so can you"   The South Central Minnesota SHRM Chapter, led by Chapter President Cassie Kohn, developed Operation Employment: an initiative to connect service members and employers in their community. This program was made possible through an Innovation Grant from the SHRM Foundation, which the chapter won in the fall of 2018. This video, captured during an Operation Employment Boss Lift in May of 2019, shares more about the program and the efforts from the local chapter to make a difference in their community Questions? Email us at SHRMFoundation@shrm.org  Past Innovation Grant Winners 2019 Innovation Grant WinnersGrants awarded to SHRM state councils and chapters with the goal of driving veteran employment in their communities.  Northwest Arkansas HR Management AssociationProgram: Workforce Inclusion Strategies for Military-connected Individuals and Employers Montana State CouncilProgram: Montana's Military Works Sheboygan Area SHRMProgram: Connecting Military with Employers South Carolina SHRM State CouncilProgram: S.C.
