Picture twelve teams, eight judges, two rounds of competition, all in search of one solution—what do you have? The Fisher College of Business MHRM Internal Case Competition! Every October, students form teams to compete against one another to solve an HR-related business problem. While this is a requirement for graduation of the MHRM program, this event allows first- and second-year students to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply it in a real-world context.

National Diversity Day is a day to celebrate and embrace who we are, despite our differences, no matter what race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, or disability. A day to reflect on and learn about different cultures and ideologies. A day to vow acceptance and tolerance. A day to consciously address these areas at educational and religious institutions, as well as in the workplace and at home. National Diversity day is an annual event on the first Friday in October (Diversity Awareness Month).
Recently, the MHRM students participated in a case competition where we sought to resolve a current HR challenge that PepsiCo is facing.

I recently attended the first installment of PeopleTalks, a Ted talk-style event coordinated by the MHRM student council open to all students in the Fisher College of Business.

Companies in attendance ranged from startups to global organizations. Here are my top takeaways from the speakers.
