About Anthony Paradiso, MS, SHRM-CP
With fifteen years of HR leadership experience, I have become very passionate about Inclusion, Diversity and Equity in the workplace. I am the Founder and President of AllThingzAP, where it is our primary mission for all to be their full authentic self.
I am a Human Resources Business Partner with Industrial U.I. Services and enjoy being on a host of boards and committees, such as the D&I Director for the Garden State Council – SHRM (GSC-SHRM) and the VP of D&I with the North Jersey – Rockland Chapter SHRM. Additionally, I am a Bergen County Human Relations Commissioner, and part of the YWCA Northern Jersey Racial Taskforce. I am also a member of the New Jersey LGBT Chamber and am NGLCC nationally certified.
I've also recently become involved in local politics. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, it is important that we have representation and have a sit at the table. Our campaign surrounded the importance of diversity of thought and embracing inclusion. Everyone should have a voice - regardless of the color of their skin, their religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, their tenure in town, occupation, education, etc.
I’ve written a number of published articles for SHRM, WorkHuman, Workology, Rezoomo, Achievers, HR Bartender, etc. and have been quoted in HR Magazine, Namely, Bonusly, “Making Work Human," the latest from WorkHuman’s Eric Mosley & Derek Irvine, the pioneers behind the human workplace movement. I have given a number of presentations and lectures about D&I, inclusion, being your authentic self, the importance of storytelling, unconscious bias, employee relations and facilitated workshops surrounding diversity & inclusion that include the privilege walk.
My education includes a BA from Binghamton University, MS in Human Relations & Business, and am HR Certified. Serving as a Speaker, Influencer, Blogger, and Educator I am proud to have influenced the industry regarding unbiased and inclusive work environments.
