Last year, we lost a shining light in HR – Callie Zipple – to stomach cancer at the far too young age of 32 (and you can read my thoughts about her from a previous blogpost here). As a student and as a representative of SHRM, she was always striving to advance the profession and make HR better.
I was contacted by her parents last week wondering if I could find a home for the HR and business books she had accumulated over the years. Given her push for HR education, and the recent announcement by the SHRM Foundation to create a student scholarship in her name for future HR leaders, I thought the best use might be to help support the scholarship through support for SHRM Foundation.
So, here’s the deal. If you make a donation (no matter how large or small) to the SHRM Foundation in 2020, and send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with some proof of donation, I will send you one of the books from Callie’s collection (while supplies last) free of charge. You can make a donation to the SHRM Foundation here.
I have 54 books to send out…can we find 54 kind donors to help support HR research and education?
