HR Office Hours — Philadelphia Edition

Big Ideas | Philadelphia | Arts | Culture | Human Resources

Hi, Philadelphia artists and arts organizations!

I’ll be in town for some meetings this Wednesday, November 8 and have a few open windows in my schedule.

If anyone is interested, I’d love to fill them by chatting about HR challenges. This post includes a list of the various topics we can talk about — from strategic hiring, to remote working arrangements, goal alignment, and introducing anti-racism and anti-bias efforts in your organization.

This is totally free, no catch. I just enjoy talking with people about how we can improve People Operations in the cultural sector. If you’re interested, email me at with what you’d like to discuss. If I think that I can be helpful, and still have time slots available, I’ll send you a link to select a time.

If next Wednesday doesn’t work, or you’re elsewhere in the country, we recently added more times to our HR Hour video calls. Also, until November 30, the application window is still open for our Strategic HR Bootcamp.

Hope to see you next week!
