Please join us for our monthly meeting in the Education Center at Norman Regional Hospital in Norman, Porter Campus.
"Discover Your Dominant Diversity Lens"
Overview: B.J. Glover will take us through an interactive exercise based on the work of Mark A. Williams, "The 10 Lenses: Your Guide to Living & Working in a Multicultural World". Her unique approach to D&I training is to create a safe, nonjudgmental environment for individuals to look inside themselves to examine their own paradigms and define strategies for addressing those that limit their ability to be objective in bias-prone situations.
Presenter - B.J. Glover
B.J. Glover is passionate about diversity and inclusion. Growing up in the deep south during the sixties and working in and out of Corporate America equipped her with a lifetime of exposure to bias--both in society and in the workplace. For more than 25 years, Ms. Glover has leveraged her experience as an HR professional, television news anchor and talk show host, consultant, trainer, facilitator, and conference presenter to address bias wherever she encountered it while training and empowering others to do the same.
Ms. Glover earned an M.S. degree in Human Resource Development from Villanova University and a B.S. degree in Human Resource Management from Southern Nazarene University. Her national professional credentials include SPHR and SHRM-SCP.
B.J.'s Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) work began as HR Director for KOCO-TV, Oklahoma City's local ABC-TV affiliate, where she concurrently hosted a weekly minority affairs talk show and was the primary anchor of the first Saturday morning newscast in the market. Immediately following that role, Ms. Glover became one of the pioneering diversity practitioners of the early eighties. She trained leaders in the areas of D&I, employee management, and media relations as an independent external consultant for such clients as AT&T and Chubb Insurance as well as the University of Oklahoma, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations.
Later, B.J. returned to Corporate America, carrying her D&I expertise to YORK International in Norman, Oklahoma where her impact was culture-changing. As Senior HR Manager, she drove the firm's local diversity initiative. She created the company's first Diversity Council and founded an African-American employee network in addition to Women's Resource Networks in two locations. She received national recognition for providing regional leadership to a North America African-American employee network. Also, while at YORK, she was one of four persons in her business unit who were chosen for a global team based in Amsterdam, Netherlands for the company's global SAP implementation.
In October 2015, Ms. Glover retired from the Corporate Center of Expertise in Learning and Development at Johnson Controls (a Fortune 68 company) where she built pipelines of future leaders throughout the enterprise. Today, she is Founder and Principal of B.J. Glover Learning and Consulting, an Oklahoma-based boutique consulting firm focused on diversity and inclusion, performance consulting, leadership development, and psychological performance training (Mental Toughness University). In her two-term role as State Director of Diversity for the Oklahoma State Council on Human Resource Management, she traveled throughout the state delivering diversity training to HR professionals. Currently, B.J. is a Certified EEO Investigator as well as an adjunct faculty member at Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City where she teaches Human Resources courses.
