For Strategic HR Leaders to Proactively Lead the Rapidly Changing World of Work.


Welcome HR Strategy Forum Community!

We have left a challenging 2021 year behind us and are beginning another 2022 already filled with more challenges, opportunities, and possibilities for things that have never been.  That’s why the HR Strategy Forum is a great place to come together with other professionals to be agile and share ideas on how to navigate and continuously pivot through this rapidly changing world.  We all need thought partners!

Come join us in this Brave New World of content, conversation, and community as the courageous Chief People Officers, HR Executives and Strategic Leaders you are.  We’ve all adapted, innovated, and expanded over the last two years as a community, and as leaders.   As a result, I believe we have even more to offer and share and we welcome you to join our community. 

We have a very exciting year of offerings from amazing experiential programming to expanded networking options to new exclusive peer-led pods.   

Our Experiential Programing in 2022 includes:  

  • Speaking out on Social/Political issues: CHRO’s role in working with CEO - January 19 (virtual). Hear from a panel of experts who will discuss today’s most pressing concerns and guide us through an effective decision-making process for dealing with social Issues effectively and with impact.

  • Leadership in the Brave New World – March 23. We’ll examine the new skills required to lead in the remote/hybrid rapidly changing work world and how we can best prepare our leaders.

  • The New Value Proposition - Employees as Humans with a Life  – June 1.  In this session we will review the “People Success” research findings based on 175 million employee responses spanning the globe, captured in the “Elements of People Success”, a new model that defines what is most important to the humans in your organization today.

  • Magnitude Shift in the Role of HR Given the Brave New World - September 21.  We will reflect on where we’ve been, celebrate what we have accomplished and talk about what’s expected of us going forward as we lead HR and our organizations in this Brave New World

  • HRSF Annual Conference: Brave New World - November 2. As wewrap up the year’s theme in person, please join us as we network with peers and hear from more expert practitioners in people and culture.  You can expect to bring to your work new perspectives, new ideas that can quickly be put into practice, new colleagues to stay in touch with, and an expanded community to lean on

New Membership Options in 2022:

We are offering a new opportunity for select HR leaders in small (up to 12-person) peer groups to meet quarterly (virtual and/or in person) to network, build relationships with colleagues facing the same challenges as you, share tools and resources, and contribute to each other’s personal and professional success.  Let me know if you are interested in learning more about this.   

What makes HR Strategy Forum different is not only that we enjoy engaging in strategic and timely topics with peers but you will also find us to be intellectually curious, inclusive, generous, fun, and down to earth representing a broad cross-section of industries across California and especially the Bay Area.

I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our community.   So come join us soon!
