The ILR Online webcast series 2014-15 lineup will feature programs with a “past, present and future” theme, to align with Cornell University’s 150th anniversary and the ILR School’s 70th anniversary in 2015.

In the May webcast, ILR faculty and senior HR executives will discuss the importance of human resources in modern organizations and how the field has evolved from an administrative function to a vital piece of a successful organization's business strategy. The program will highlight some of the latest issues and trends in diversity and analytics, and address the impact of technology on HR practice as well as expectations for HR leaders of the future. Viewers are encouraged to participate in the program by offering questions and comments throughout the live webcast.
