Bringing together black HR professionals around the world
HR is at the heart of organisations making crucial decisions on hiring, progression, remuneration and more. The industry is underrepresented when it comes to black professionals.
About this event
In this virtual event our speakers will be discussing how they got into the industry, the challenges of working in HR as a black person in the UK, and sharing their views on what skills the industry demands today.
