SHRM21 Keynote Speaker Announcement

Leaders from Chipotle and Life is Good To Tackle DE&I, Culture at SHRM21

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 1, 2021 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) announced today that Chipotle Mexican Grill’s Chairman and CEO, Brian Niccol, Chief Diversity, Inclusion and People Officer, Marissa Andrada, and Life is Good Co-Founder and Chief Executive Optimist, Bert Jacobs, will be keynote speakers for SHRM’s Annual Conference and Expo, September 9-12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Live on the SHRM21 Main Stage, Niccol and Andrada will lead a discussion on workplace culture, resiliency, talent strategies and the crucial partnership between a CEO and HR.

“There’s no question about it – the past 15 months haven’t been easy. As the U.S. recovers, businesses are not only surviving, but thriving and doubling down on workplace culture—and at its core, that’s what HR is all about,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, SHRM President and CEO. “As partners in their roles as CEO and Chief Diversity, Inclusion and People Officer, Brian and Marissa have fearlessly led Chipotle through transformative leadership and collaboration. They are a live case study on how a focus on culture and people truly creates strong and healthy workplaces.”

Jacobs will join a lineup of over 140 speakers to discuss the importance of optimism and collaboration in a changing world of work.

“Life is Good and the HR community share some startling similarities: keeping an eye towards solutions, progress and growth,” said Taylor. “With this in mind, I’m thrilled to welcome Bert to the SHRM21 Main Stage for a critical conversation on the power of optimism to lead and collaborate in the workplace.

SHRM21 will be virtual and in-person on September 9-12 in Las Vegas, Nevada. HR professionals, CHROs, people managers and students will have the opportunity to engage on best workplace practices, discuss new DE&I data from SHRM, learn about the latest trends and benchmarking, and explore how to a build better workplace culture.

Andrada said, “The world of work and function of HR is undergoing an evolution, and I believe the role of HR today is to help an organization grow through its people. Corporations are only as good as the people they have and the purpose that those individuals believe in. Brian and I look forward to sharing our experience with resetting Chipotle’s culture at SHRM21.”

“Life is Good shares a common goal with HR professionals, and that’s investing in our workforce, our culture and our communities,” said Jacobs. “We’ve all faced tremendous challenges this year, but we can’t forget the silver lining: Businesses, with professionals, can pivot, adapt and innovate while strengthening company culture—creating optimism in the face of adversity. This is a message that rings true for HR professionals who have truly been on the frontlines of the workplace.”

The theme of SHRM21 is Now More Than Ever, and encourages HR and business leaders to build workplaces where employees and employers thrive—even during these ever-changing times. More speakers will be announced in the upcoming weeks. To learn more, please visit annual.shrm.org.

April 30, 2021 – Tune in Tuesdays, SHRM’s only TV show brought to you by SHRM21, returns for episode eleven on May 11 at 2:00 p.m. ET/ 11:00 a.m. PT.

Mental health has been significantly hit by the toll of COVID-19 and everything that happened in 2020. HR has a unique position to lead the effort in supporting employee mental health in the workplace and fostering culture that encourages open conversations around mental health. During this can’t-miss Tune in Tuesdays episode, you’ll hear from Dr. Alex Alonso, Chief Knowledge Officer at SHRM, Patrick J. Kennedy, Former Congressman, Founder of The Kennedy Forum, and Co-Founder of One Mind, and Marjorie Morrison, President and CEO of Psych Hub. This engaging panel will discuss how the latest data on mental health in the workplace has changed, what employers need to consider to build a culture of acceptance around mental health, and more.

Featured speakers for this episode include:

  • Dr. Alex Alonso, Chief Knowledge Officer, SHRM. Alexander Alonso, PhD, SHRM-SCP is the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM’s) Chief Knowledge Officer leading operations for SHRM’s Certified Professional and Senior Certified Professional certifications, research functions, and the SHRM Knowledge Advisor service. He is responsible for all research activities, including the development of the SHRM Competency Model and SHRM credentials. During his career, he has worked with numerous subject matter experts worldwide with the aim of identifying performance standards, developing competency models, designing organizational assessments, and conducting job analyses. He was also responsible for working on contract task orders involving the development of measurement tools for content areas such as job knowledge (like teacher knowledge of instructional processes) and organizational climates (like organizational climate forecasting in military health care). Dr. Alonso received his doctorate in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Florida International University in 2003. He has also authored several chapters on community-based change initiatives in workforce readiness, as well as co-authoring Defining HR Success: A Guide to the SHRM Competency Model in Practice. Dr. Alonso also served as a columnist analyzing major trends in the workforce for The Industrial Psychologist and HR Magazine. In addition, he has served on several professional society boards including the SIOP and the Personnel Testing Council of Metropolitan Washington.
  • The Honorable Patrick J. Kennedy, Former Congressman (D-RI); Founder, The Kennedy Forum; Co-Founder, One Mind. During his 16 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, serving Rhode Island’s First Congressional District, Patrick J. Kennedy fought to end discrimination against those with mental illness, addiction, and other brain diseases. He is best known as the lead sponsor of the landmark Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (Federal Parity Law), which was passed with bi-partisan support and signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 3, 2008. The Federal Parity Law provides millions of Americans, previously denied care, with access to mental health and addiction treatment by requiring insurance companies to cover treatment for mental health and substance use disorders no more restrictively than treatment for illnesses of the body, such as diabetes and cancer. In addition to the Federal Parity Law, Kennedy authored and co-sponsored dozens of bills during his time in Congress to increase the understanding and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including the Positive Aging Act; Foundations for Learning Act; National Neurotechnology Initiative Act; Genomics and Personalized Medicine Act; COMBAT PTSD Act; Nurse-Family Partnership Act; Alzheimer’s Treatment and Caregiver Support Act; and Ready, Willing, and Able Act, which called on the Department of Homeland Security to deploy a civilian response system to blunt the psychological impact of terrorism. He served on various committees and subcommittees, including the House Appropriations Committee; the Subcommittee on Health, Education and Welfare; the Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education; and the Subcommittee on Veterans Affairs. In 2013, he founded The Kennedy Forum, a non-profit organization whose mission is to lead a national dialogue on transforming mental health and addiction care delivery by uniting mental health advocates, business leaders, and government agencies around a common set of principles, including full implementation of the Federal Parity Law. The Forum aims to achieve health equity by advancing evidence-based practices, policies, political will, and programming in mental health and addiction treatment. In 2015, Kennedy co-authored the New York Times bestseller “A Common Struggle” in which he shares both his personal narrative and his experience shepherding the Federal Parity Law. The book ends with Kennedy’s detailed roadmap to achieve health equity in the United States. In 2017, Kennedy served on the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis. His personal contributions to the final report focused on the declaration of a federal emergency and strong parity-based recommendations. Patrick J. Kennedy is also the founder of DontDenyMe.org, an educational campaign that empowers consumers and providers to understand parity rights and connects them to essential appeals guidance and resources; co-founder of One Mind, an organization that pushes for greater global investment in brain research; co-founder of Psych Hub, the most comprehensive online learning platform on mental health, substance use, and suicide prevention topics in the world; co-chair of Mental Health for US, a nonpartisan initiative designed to elevate mental health and addiction in policy conversations during the 2020 election cycle; and co-chair of the Action Alliance’s National Response to COVID-19, which brings together public and private sectors to lead a coordinated mental health and suicide prevention response. Amid countless recognitions, meaningful partnerships, and political affiliations, Kennedy’s most important achievement continues to be leveraging his family legacy in the arenas of civil rights, mental health, and intellectual disabilities to advance the cause of social justice and health equity for all people. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Amy, and their children.
  • Marjorie Morrison, President and CEO of Psych Hub. Marjorie Morrison is the president and CEO of Psych Hub, the premier online platform for impactful and engaging learning on mental health topics. A visionary and passionate pioneer in the mental health space, Morrison co-founded Psych Hub with Patrick J. Kennedy in 2018 with a focused goal to combat both quality and access issues in behavioral health. Psych Hub certifies behavioral health providers into specialties using evidence-based interventions, allowing for more precision therapy with companion treatment tools for their patients. The Mental Health Ally Platform provides a host of eLearning opportunities for the layperson to learn how to assist those in need. Psych Hub’s public video library for people seeking to learn more about some of our Nation’s most vexing mental health challenges have had over three million views on their YouTube channel. Psych Hub is currently developing a registry of certified providers in specialty areas, making it easier to match those seeking treatment from a provider who has been trained to treat their diagnosis or symptoms. Psych Hub has over 700 partners that share their mental health resources to their audiences, touching every state in the US and every continent on the planet. Prior to launching Psych Hub, Morrison was the founder and CEO of PsychArmor Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, committed to bridging the military-civilian divide by developing, promoting, and distributing free online courses spanning a wide range of topics important to those who serve military service members and their families. Morrison left PsychArmor in 2019 to dedicate her full-time attention to Psych Hub but remains involved as a member of the Board of Directors. Marjorie’s focus on supporting members of the military and their communities was first developed in the field, after she spent a year writing and implementing a revolutionary proactive counseling program for the U.S. Marines. After working with 500 Marine drill instructors, her innovative program continued at Camp Pendleton, where she had access to hundreds of Marines to interview, work with, and learn from. This implementation research was utilized to create a groundbreaking solution to approach military mental health care. Morrison is a CA Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, a CA Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, a PPS-credentialed School Psychologist, and the author of The Inside Battle: Our Military Mental Health Crisis. As a renowned subject matter expert, she has been featured numerous times by national media giants such as BBC, NBC, FOX, CBS, CNN, and NPR, along with being a contributing writer for multiple outlets including TIME, Newsweek, The Daily Beast, and Huffington Post. Morrison has received numerous awards for her advocacy and leadership.
