The landscape of human resources (HR) is changing before our eyes, and it can be challenging to stay updated and informed as it evolves. However, this is where AfroTech is stepping in to support.

As we previously shared, in April 2023, Talent Infusion — AfroTech’s first-ever SaaS platform — was launched to aid in employers recruiting a higher number of top diverse job candidates.

Since pushing diversity forward is at the heart of the platform, a new series to further support AfroTech’s mission has been incepted.

Talent Infusion has announced “Breaking Barriers,” a series that aims to provide a platform for HR and recruiting professionals to share their personal and professional journeys.

The episodes will feature professionals from a diverse pool of talent who will take viewers through their valuable insights and lessons learned throughout their careers. Viewers will also gain knowledge of HR’s evolving landscape and advice they can implement to achieve their goals.

Talent Infusion’s “Breaking Barriers” first episode is kicking off with NASCAR Chief Human Resources Officer John Ferguson. Under his current role, he is responsible for the development and execution of NASCAR’s human resource planning in support of the overall business plan and strategic direction of the organization. Ferguson’s interest in human resources grew under his passion for “helping people reach their full potential in and outside of the workplace.”

He shared, “My professional journey to the C-suite has been rooted in flowing to where the opportunities are, delivering results, building relationships, but most importantly, to never stop being a student.”
