Kenosha County has selected a candidate for its new Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator position, Human Resources Director Clara-lin Tappa announced today.
Kelsey Hubeler is expected to begin in the role on April 25, Tappa said.
Hubeler is currently a Program Manager for Aerotek, a worldwide recruiting and staffing service.
She received a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management and a Master of Business Administration in Human Resources, both from Herzing University in Kenosha, and she holds a Certified Professional certification from the Society for Human Resource Management.
“Kelsey is a native Kenoshan and an experienced HR professional dedicated to equity and diversity,” Tappa said. “She has a proven track record of making EDI a priority in her professional life, and we are fortunate to bring her talents to use in Kenosha County.”
Hubeler said she looks forward to expanding her community roots and making a positive impact.
“I am extremely passionate in this space with an emphasis on equity, diversity and inclusion,” Hubeler said. “I look forward to joining the Kenosha County Human Resources team.”
The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator position was included in the 2022 county budget that the County Board adopted in November. It came as the county has committed to making internal and external reviews of racial equity, with the latter occurring under the oversight of a Racial and Ethnic Equity Commission that was seated in 2021.
“In 2020 the County Board passed a resolution expressing Kenosha County’s commitment to achieving racial equity with an expectation that we work to create an inclusive organization and incorporate inclusion and equity into organizational practice,” Tappa said. “As EDI Coordinator, Kelsey will be dedicated to helping us meet those expectations.”
