#HRWonderWoman Virtual Session for #WorkHuman2020

Last summer, I was thrilled to receive notice that my #HRWonderWomen submission for Work Human Live 2020 had been accepted. Anne Tomkinson & I had submitted the idea to have a live panel discussion where we would talk with women of color and record it to share as a podcast. Anne and I had just …

#HRSocialHour & #BlackBlogsMatter – the Crossover Chat You Never Knew You Needed

After a long weekend of selling cookies (seriously, over 2 days, we spent 8 hours at Wal-mart & 2 hours at Runnings. Tired doesn't begin to cover it!), Rocky & I hit our favorite craft beer tasting room with some cookies to pair up (always good). So I was able to participate in this wonderful …

No More HR Tribe for Me; #HRWonderWomen episode with @jenwendat

A little over a year ago, Laurie Ruettimann wrote a blog post on how she didn't like "HR Tribe". Not the group. The phrase. She had just finished Steve Browne's book (which she raved about and I loved as well. Go get it. Worth it.) and while she loved it, she had an issue with …
