Our Mission and Vision
NAAAHR exists to provide a unique global forum for the career development of Black and African American human resources professionals.
The National Association of African Americans in Human Resources (NAAAHR), is an inspirational and unique career development and networking powerhouse for Black and African American human resources practitioners and those who are aligned with our goals to provide: Networking, Career Opportunities, Educational and Professional Development, Mentorship and Coaching and Tools, Tips and Resources. These opportunities will enhance the careers of our members and position them to be key contributors of the strategic direction of their organizations!
Incorporated in September 1998 in the State of Maryland, the NAAAHR was co-sponsored by the Baltimore Black Human Resources Network and the Washington DC Black Human Resources Network. The NAAAHR was formed by a coalition of 17 local organizations of Black and African American professionals and consultants from many cities across the country.
The Association’s social media community is made up of a collection of over 15,000 HR members, affiliates and operates over 25 chapters and interest groups throughout the nation. Many of the members are affiliated with other professional and trade organizations but find their local NAAAHR chapter a valued resource for shared learning, professional development and personal growth opportunities.
