Winter 2021 Meetings

April Meeting:
University of Michigan-Flint and UM-Flint Society for Human Resources Management Student Chapter present The Civility Project
Thursday, April 8th, 2021 @ 7:00-8:00 PM EST
We have scheduled a session for The Civility Project to speak to SHRM/UM-Flint community. 
Americans are best when they engage in civil conversation with people of opposing views, but today many feel they can’t be friends with those whose politics are different. The Civility Project is changing that.

Long-time journalists and unlikely friends Stephen Henderson and Nolan Finley launched the Civility Project, where they show that civility IS possible, and why we should all embrace it as a way to move ourselves forward in life and in work. They also offer tips for building civility in your own life, starting now.

This is a FREE Zoom Session on to all!

Delta Dental of Michigan is a proud sponsor of The Civility Project.
