News from the San Diego State University SHRM Chapter

Kelly Huynh, SHRM SDSU President

SHRM SDSU had a great Fall semester with a number of professional development events for our students.  For our first SHRM Speaker Series Event of the fall semester, we were honored to have Patti Perez, VP of Workplace Culture at Emtrain and author of the new book, The Drama-free Workplace: How you can Prevent Unconscious Bias, Sexual Harassment, Ethics Lapses, and Inspire a Healthy Culture.  She discussed ways to promote a positive, inclusive workplace culture when we get into our HR careers. Members were excited to get to speak with her one-on-one after the talk and receive a signed copy of her book for our members in attendance. It was an amazing kick off to our Fall semester!

SHRM SDSU hosted a Resume Workshop in collaboration with SDSU Career Services Career Peers. Career Peers presented the basics and tips of how to craft your professional resume. Thank you Career Services for helping our members get their resumes in shape. Attendees learned a lot on perfecting resumes and honing their networking skills. 

Members enjoyed our October SHRM Speaker Series guest speaker, Mark Lindner, General Manager of MillerCoors, and Fowler College of Business supporter.  Mark shared his experience and knowledge on how to create a personal brand in the workplace and tips for salary negotiation.

Our last Fall SHRM Speaker Series Event was our HR Young Professionals Panel.  We had five SHRM SDSU alumni share their knowledge, early HR career experiences, and answered student questions (pictured, from the left: Mollie Sreden, Travis Doderlein, Steven Diab, Angelica Prout, Julia Denbaugh, and Patricia Rosiles). Our chapter thanks all of our outstanding alumni who continue to support the chapter and stay engaged after graduation.

It was a great Fall semester and the spring is now underway with lots of great events planned.  We are always looking for guest speakers to come talk to our chapter and will begin planning our Fall 2020 programming soon  If you are interested in coming to speak to our student chapter, please reach out to me at  Thanks!
