     Speaker Biography:

    Cecilia A. Clark (‘Cici’)  is a business-oriented talent management leader with almost a decade of experience in Human Resources management with experience in Talent Acquisition, Retention, Workforce Performance, Employee Relations, and Employee Engagement.

    To Cecilia, every employee has the capacity for self-empowerment and the potential to overcome challenges and become an ideal employee.  In her role as an influential change agent, ‘CiCi’ is driven to create strategic solutions to help employees thrive while achieving corporate goals. Cecilia focuses on developing key relationships with senior leaders to provide innovative HR solutions including coaching and mentoring programs, affinity groups, apprenticeship programs and ATS implementation to drive talent acquisition, employee engagement, retention, employee relations and leadership training.  She is known by employees at her plant as a passionate HR professional who drives everyone towards achieving Schwan’s desired state.  She has led many New Employee Onboarding classes and has taught over 150 new employees what it means to be an impactful and productive employee.

    Currently, Cecilia is a Sr. HR Generalist for Schwan’s.  She is working at one of their food manufacturing companies supporting two plants in Houston, TX. Previously, Cecilia has held several HR positions including Talent Acquisition Manager with NextOp, Inc., Talent Acquisition Consultant with Voyig, LCC and Human Resources Manager with the US Army.

    Cecilia is a native Galvestonian and proud Texan with a strong military background.  She enlisted in the United States Army in April 2005 and served multiple enlistments with both Active Duty and Reserve components, including a year-long deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. During her time in the service, Cecilia worked as a Bell 407 helicopter mechanic before transitioning to a role in Human Resources. After serving more than 10 years and earning the rank of Staff Sergeant, Cecilia left Active Duty service in 2015. 

    Cecilia was a guest panelist for Source Houston, a local conference focusing on best sourcing techniques and made guest appearances at HR focused podcasts like CAVNESSHR. In addition, Cecilia was a 2017 SHRM Foundation scholarship winner to attend SHRM’s Annual Conference & Exposition in June 2017, where she spoke during the Foundation’s luncheon about her service and passion for veteran hiring. She was also chosen to join the SHRM blogger team for the SHRM18 and the SHRM19 conference. Some of her speaking engagement experience includes: keynote speaker at a Louisville SHRM chapter meeting in March 2018 and a keynote guest speaker for the WISRHM in 2018.

    Cecilia is a strong advocate, mentor, and supporter of transitioning service members and veterans. She has mentored more than 340 veterans to help each find their passion and pursue the right careers based on their military and civilian background. As a volunteer, Cecilia has served on many committees and groups focused on veteran hiring and empowerment, including:  the Women Veterans Empowerment Expo, U.S. Congressman Brian Babin’s Advisory Council, Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership, Lone Star Veterans Association, Greater Houston Partnership Upskill Houston, and Hiring Red, White, and You.
