    The Milwaukee Center for Independence Diversity Team received
    the Wisconsin State Society for Human Resource Management
    (SHRM) Diversity Advocacy Award on October 6.
    “We pride ourselves on placing a high value on embracing,
    celebrating and including diversity in our workforce,” said Al
    Hill, MCFI Diversity Director (left photo, right). “Our robust
    calendar of events and diversity activities held throughout the
    year has raised the level of employee engagement as well as
    our employees’ cultural competence.”
    Criteria for the award included being a strong role model
    and advocate for diversity, inclusion and workplace flexibility;
    demonstrating leadership in championing the cause of racial,
    ethnic, linguistic, cultural and other dimensions of diversity;
    and being a pioneer in implementing innovative programs to
    increase workplace flexibility, such as MCFI’s Working Parenting
    Employee Resource Group.
    “That group has led the way in helping the agency appreciate
    and value the flexibility needed in the workplace to understand,
    manage and balance our work and family lives,” said Hill.
    It is the second time the MCFI Diversity Team received the
    award; the first one was in 2010.
    Congratulations MCFI!
