Calling All Public-Sector Professionals — Join Us at the Industry Insights Digital Summit

Today’s post continues our new Industry Insights series with a guest contribution from Tasha Yohan, industry marketing manager for K-12 and higher education at UKG. 
UKG is hosting its annual Industry Insights Digital Summit this Thursday, September 14, where the focus will be on how to empower your people with the data they need to make informed decisions, optimize performance, and achieve better outcomes. 
This free, half-day, virtual event is packed with thought leadership, expert-led sessions, and networking opportunities. The content covers the trends and issues that matter most to your industry, so you’ll walk away with new ideas and strategies to help your organization — and your people — thrive. 
We will be hosting two sessions tailored to public-sector professionals, featuring speakers from UKG, the City of Oklahoma City, Washington State, and the International Public Management Association for HR (IPMA-HR). These panels will inform attendees on the latest and greatest when it comes to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B)-focused talent management best practices and new compliance challenges to be aware of. 
Leveraging Data to Increase DEI&B in Talent Management Practices 
When it comes to hiring in a diverse and equitable manner, organizations have turned to recruitment tactics to ensure their DEI&B initiatives shine through in their hiring practices. But, how can those same organizations safeguard diversity in leadership roles and equitable opportunities for all in the workplace? 
During this session, you’ll hear from Neena Kovuru, strategic HCM value consultant at UKG; Shalynne Jackson, chief inclusion and diversity officer for the City of Oklahoma City; and Michaela Geronima Doelman, state chief human resources officer for the State of Washington; as they discuss their personal and work experiences and how data complements the way the public sector is executing its DEI&B initiatives. 
Three things to watch for in this session: strategies for managing diversity in people-leader roles, developing current talent for growth, and building an inclusive culture of belonging. 
Government Affairs: Legislative, Regulatory, and Judicial Issues That Impact Employers and Employees 
Back by popular demand, this is a can’t-miss session for employers in all industries — not just the public sector — that like to stay informed on policies related to labor compliance. The speakers will cover the gamut of regulations, both existing and proposed, that impact the workforce. 
Join us to hear from Robert Wennagel, senior compliance advisor at UKG; Judy Luczak, manager of professional services consulting at UKG; Robert Greene, senior HCM value consultant at UKG, and Neil Reichenberg, former executive director of IPMA-HR and a former member of the UKG Workforce Institute advisory board. 
This is a great opportunity to catch up and learn expert insights on what lies ahead in U.S. workforce legislation and public policy in areas including the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS). 
Three things to watch for in this session: proposed AI legislation, new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reporting requirements, and the recently announced Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rule. 
There’s a lot to look forward to as we get ready to kick of the 2023 Industry Insights Digital Summit. You can still join us on September 14! Register here to attend. We’ll see you there!
