  • Corp. Social Responsibility & Sustainability Panel

    Andrew Wilson was selected to serve a three-year term as a Panel Member for the Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM's) Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainability Special Expertise Panel.  SHRM Special Expertise Panels provide input to the SHRM Board, volunteers, members, and staff by identifying emerging trends in specific topic areas, providing expert advice on matters of professional significance, and providing guidance on matters of public policy. Panel members are appointed to a three-year term, and are selected based upon their specialized knowledge and demonstrated contribution to their field. 

    The 2010 panel nominees were selected using the SHRM Volunteer Opportunities Center, a comprehensive recruitment and selection process that assisted in the identification of panel members and allowed SHRM to broadly announce panel positions; and through referrals of both of both staff and current volunteers.  Those nominated were considered by a Panel Selection Committee composed of volunteer leaders and staff, who, in turn, submitted slates for each panel to the Governance Committee of the SHRM Board for review and approval.
