Conference Information

The WI State Council SHRM Student Case Competition will take place on Saturday, April 2, 2022 at Moraine Park Technical College in Beaver Dam.

This competition requires integrated HR thinking, ethical decision-making, and strong communications and presentation skills.

Teams will be provided with a business case study 2 weeks before the event. Each team will analyze the case study and come up with a solution, preparing both a written executive summary and PowerPoint slides to be included in a 15-minute presentation to be submitted prior to the event.

Dorothy Enriquez | Ellevate Collective
What it Means to Lead From Every Seat

About the Program: College student, working professional, and contributor to one's community are all titles you each are all working to achieve. Let us explore how these positions and your affiliation as a SHRM student member can be leveraged as you continue to work towards what success looks like for you! Whatever the seat, join the conversation as we figure out what it means for you to take the next steps to claim your position.

What it Means to Lead From Every Seat is designed to help student leaders feel empowered as they unlock their leadership to rise into influential and powerful roles. This workshop offers practical and relatable tips regarding personal and professional growth and success. We will focus on getting into alignment and position to help you accelerate to your ascent. Participants will explore what it would look like to step into their leadership powerfully even in the face of fear. 

 What We Cover: 
 • Align with Your Purpose 
 • Take Your Seat at the Table 
 • Overcome Imposter Syndrome Benefits: When young people are developed, trained, and supported to ascend into powerful roles, they can change the game.

When tomorrow’s leaders lead from every seat they sit in, the organization sees transformation as well as dollars. With the right mindset, skillset and toolset, emerging leaders would be primed to take their seat at the table in today’s current landscape and climate.

Biography

Originally from Seattle, Washington, Alexis B. Carter has called Milwaukee home since 2001 following a relocation to the Midwest. Carter received her BA in Business and Management from Alverno College and her Master’s Degree in Science and Management from Cardinal Strich University.

For the last 14 years, Carter has held positions focusing on the functions of Human Resources and Education (K-12 and Higher Ed). Carter's experience in executive-level recruitment, talent acquisition, and employee incentive programming has helped shift the organizational culture of a variety of organizations and promote change management. In K-12 and higher education settings, she has passionately served in the public, private and charter sectors, most recently serving for four years, as the Director of Admissions and Enrollment at St. Joan Antida High School, an all-girls school.

In 2019, Carter returned to her alma mater, Alverno College as an employee, to serve in the role of Assistant Director of Admissions for Undergraduate students. It has been a pleasure for Carter to be able to serve in all-girl educational space and promote college to prospective students and families.

Carter is currently studying to get her credentials to be a certified professional of Human Resources by taking the SHRM – CP exam in the summer of 2020. Carter served on the Executive Board of Directors at Highland Community Montessori School, is a current member of Milwaukee Metro Society for
Human Resource Management, is a member of the Diversity Equity & Inclusion Council at Alverno College, and helps combat homelessness as a member of the Salvation Army’s millennial professional group: Echelon Milwaukee.

In her spare time, Carter enjoys watching Wisconsin sports (Go Bucks Go!), playing on her local kickball league, playing the violin, cooking, gardening and spending time traveling with her husband and eight-year-old son Che (like Hey but with a C).
