Join us for an important, interactive HR presentation, followed by a networking reception. This will be an evening you won't want to miss. Limited space - register today.

In the era of #MeToo, there is no more important conversation for HR than taking accountability for our roles.  We in HR have been both part of the problem and hold the key to a better future for our companies. If we cannot create safe workspaces for our people, we don’t have the right to talk about ANYTHING else.

In this extremely candid talk, Rebecca calls on HR to confront the most challenging aspects of a changing workforce and workplace realities. She tells her own #MeToo story in which she spoke up about the pattern of inequity and harassment she witnessed and was then forced out of the company. She shares very specific tactics gained from her decades of experience as an HR disruptor, including some that will likely make the attorneys sweat. She also shares lessons learned from the HRuprise social movement. She discusses training issues, how to flip conventional wisdom on its head and shares how to reexamine everything we think we know about our company culture.

It is only by confronting difficult truths can HR hope to recover relevance. You will walk away inspired, with very specific actions items, as well as a renewed sense of purpose in your HR role. It’s time to get uncomfortable, HR. We need our soul back.
