Why I Support AHRD’s Foundation
I have been involved with the Academy since its organization, because I believe that the practice of HRD needs to be grounded in solid theory and research. Unfortunately, as a field, we are often enticed to follow fads that have no or poor theoretical foundations and little to no research to support the practice. The Academy’s focus on research has continued to encourage me to believe that we can help individuals, for-profit and not-for-profit corporations, government institutions, and people globally.
For this to occur, we need to continue to emphasize research and to support it when we can through funding for research. Modest contributions from many members of the Academy can make a huge difference in what we are able to do as a community in forwarding research. I invite you to join me in this undertaking
