About Us

Welcome to our current and prospective members!

The National Association of African Americans in Human Resources-Greater New York (NAAAHR-GNY) is a progressive and growing not-for-profit organization.  Our mission is to provide a regional forum where Black and African American human resources practitioners, and those aligned with our goals – to share, gain information and provide leadership on issues affecting their individual careers and the global workforce.  By doing this, we endeavor to increase the presence and leadership ability in minority talent at all levels, across all industries, by facilitating conferences, symposiums, seminars, regional events, career fairs and building strategic alliances.

It is an honor and privilege for me to serve as President and lead a Board who is committed to ensure that our members receive the best in thought leadership, are provided certified education programs, an opportunity to attend powerful networking events and exposure to exceptional resources on a comprehensive website.  This will allow our members to develop and refine their skill set to make them a better professional and more competitive in the market place.  To all HR professionals in the Greater NY area who are interested in professional advancement, furthering their company’s commitment to diversity and strengthening their company’s HR practices, we invite you to become an active member of our dynamic Greater New York NAAAHR Chapter.
