HR Southwest Conference
We encourage all Baylor HRM majors to attend the HR Southwest Conference in Fort Worth each fall.
The conference offers many student scholarships to cover registration fees, but students need to apply early for a scholarship.
For more information on the conference and scholarships see the HR Southwest Conference website.
The HR Southwest Conference is valuable for all attendees, but don't take our word for it. Read what Susan Lee, HRM alum, said about her experience.
"The HR Southwest Conference is an incredible experience for several reasons: first, your network will grow exponentially. You'll get to meet an amazing group of professionals and students who want to mentor you, offer you a job or internship, and help you professionally develop. Secondly, it is a great learning experience. If you don't know exactly what you want to do in HR, or want to explore an area further, this conference lets you experience that hands-on. You'll hear all the latest updates from experienced professionals. Finally, the conference is a lot of fun and FREE for students through a sponsorship. Not only will you get to attend a great conference, you will get prizes, participate in a young professionals mixer, and enjoy great meals at no cost. Attending the HR Southwest Conference is what really lit my passion for the field, while also growing my network and teaching me a lot about the field."
