Privilege. And a new venture

I've been thinking about privilege a lot lately. I've never really considered myself privileged. I've been "lucky" or "blessed" but not privileged? That meant fabulously wealthy (like on Life Styles of the Rich & Famous), right? Like people who lived in large cities in a fancy house who sent their kids to a private school …

Trust: a #podcast with @garryturner0

A few months ago, I put out the call for guest posts (still accepting if anyone is interested, hint hint) and Garry Turner responded. He shared a great post with me on Connections, which is right up my alley as I seem to be all about networking lately. Garry and I had a great conversation …

#HRSocialHour Episode 26 with @gem4ever

Jon and I have known Gemma for quite some time through Twitter. I first met Gemma in person at DisruptHR in Minneapolis and it was fantastic to get to know her a little better there. And when all of us were invited to be a part of the #SHRM18Blogger team, we knew it would be …

#HRSocialHour Episode 27 with @TheHRPanda

Amanda is a lesson in perseverance! She has a wonderful story about how she got involved with the SHRM YPAC by networking, connections and not giving up! We got connected with Amanda shortly before SHRM18 through #nextchat and I LOVE that she made the effort to connect with us and join us as most of …

#HRSocialHour: Episode 20 with @Paula4Harvey

I had the opportunity to meet Paula at SHRM VLS in November 2017. She is all about SHRM, which is great, but we probably need to start talking about an intervention! I just love her enthusiasm and her willingness to help & share her knowledge with anyone who asks. Paula has decided she's my big …

#HRSocialHour: Episode 16 with @CrossoverHR

I'm a little shocked that we did not get a photo with Dan Cross at #SHRM18. One of my favorite parts of going back through these episodes is remembering meeting these awesome folks in Chicago and making the real life connection. I did get to meet Dan at #SHRM16, and a photo exists somewhere ... …

#HRSocialHour: Episode 17 with @conmkw

Jon and I had the pleasure of being on the #SHRM18Blogger squad with Mary, who is brand new to blogging (but only on Linkedin so far ...). Mary joined my little group for brunch on the Saturday before SHRM and she is just as sweet and awesome as her voices sounds! So even though she …

#HRSocialHour: Episode 18 with @cherylnelsonPHR

I had the pleasure of meeting Cheryl Nelson for the first time at DisruptHRMSP. She is an experienced HR professional and we loved talking with her about changes to the working world (especially the wonders of changing from legal size to letter sized paper in the legal world!). She is the "grill master" which has …

Our 2nd Live with International Bloggers episode boasts THREE awesome bloggers. Mofota Sefali is an HR professional from South Africa. I absolute LOVE her story about how she got into talent acquisition. This was Mofota's very first trip to the US. Favorite movie: Girl's Trip Favorite music: Damian Marley, "Autumn Leaves" (Bob Marley's Son) Favorite …
