Transformational HR Summit hosted by the HR Collective – 2nd Annual

October 23 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Transformational HR Summit. We are prepared to bring high caliber speakers, relevant topics in your workplace, an engaging, down to earth key note speaker, people operations technology demos, networking and fun!

The goal of the Seattle HR Collective is to support strategic and effective HR/People Operations leaders. We’re a startup friendly community that provides professional development beyond the basics of people ops in the form of training, best practices, guest speakers, and high caliber networking. We could not think of a better way to deliver on this goal than bringing together experienced leaders with Seattle’s startup HR community.
