Equity in HR Community of Practice


Against a light purple background, a diverse group of adults holds a piece of a multi-colored pie chart with browser windows behind them. Dark blue squiggles and a large light blue circle are in the background. At the top is a purple rectangle with white text reading, "EQUITY IN HR COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE".

Are you looking for a community of people to support you and your organization in building HR and operating policies and procedures that center employees, equity, and anti-racism? If so, join the Equity in HR community of practice.
We’ll talk about returning to the office, equity in compensation, HR’s role in supporting staff healing and development, the role of HR in our organizations and anything else you might have questions about. This is an open dialogue with the expectation that we will all contribute when we can.

This is a group for people looking to make changes now, those looking to become more aware of what is possible and those who are curious. In this group we will challenge each other to take risks, break new ground or and operate from a place of love, trust and equity rather than fear and control.

We will meet the 4th Monday of each month, 11-12:30. Bring yoour curiosities and your contributions.

Additionally we will host a listserve for people to seek and share support around building equity into HR.
