Did you know? The Diane McClendon Scholarship can make Impact in HR!

In my new book “Find Your Lane”, Chapter 8 is titled “Making The Most Of Your Journey”. The chapter of the book is about serving others in the workplace and in your community. One of the subtitles is “10 ideas that can make impact. Some of these ideas include: Connecting people, Sharing resources, and Nominating someone deserving for an award. As I think about this, I think about DallasHR’s Inaugural Diane McClendon HR Scholarship.

Today, I want to share this information with you. Please review and share this post with others that might be interested in this HR award of excellence too. It will make impact! 

DallasHR, a local SHRM chapter in Dallas is dedicated to developing human resource professionals to better align their functions within their organizations with their company’s overall strategic goals. To that end, DallasHR created the Diane McClendon Scholarship, which recognizes human resource professionals who have demonstrated a commitment to the field of HR through the pursuit of professional achievement and community outreach. This award is designed to assist the recipient’s professional growth through educational and networking opportunities afforded through DallasHR membership and attendance at The HRSouthwest Conference.

The selected applicant will receive:

  1. Full registration to The HRSouthwest Conference (http://hrsouthwest.com/)
  2. Three (3) nights of complimentary lodging at an official Conference hotel during the year the award is granted.

The namesake of the scholarship, Diane McClendon, served as the executive director of DallasHR and The HRSouthwest Conference for 14 years, retiring in early 2016. The positive impact she has had on the organization left its mark…and all who worked alongside her are better people because of her leadership.
