Human Resources Management

Third-year students in the Honours Human Rights and Human Diversity program may be eligible to enrol in graduate certificates in Community and Social Service Management or Human Resource Management through an articulation agreement between Laurier and Conestoga College (Brantford Campus).

What is Human Resources Management?

Human resources management is a key sector where the concerns of human rights and human diversity meet the practical reality of workplaces, whether in the public, private or non-profit sector. Hiring, promotions, and workplace conditions have serious and immediate implications for whether individuals of diverse backgrounds and identities enjoy the equality and opportunities that human rights principles suggest everyone deserves.

Why Human Rights and Human Diversity and Human Resource Management?

Human Rights and Human Diversity addresses two key aspects of today's workplaces: workplaces are highly regulated by human rights codes and labour regulations and the workforces that populate them are diverse and likely to become more so in the future. Having a deeper understanding of these powerful trends should be advantageous to you in your career.

Human rights concern human dignity. A secure and well-paying job can enable people to experience lives of dignity. Human resources managers exercise influence over who gets those jobs. If we're going to have a real equality of opportunity, we need human resources managers who care about human rights.
