It started one cold night in Chicago, when a diverse group of women representing various ages and backgrounds, gathered together from across the country. There were pomegranate martinis, laughter, and great conversation.
And from that lively conversation came a question:
Why isn't there a site dedicated to the development of women in HR and Business the way we wanted one to be? Some place that women can go to get information, discuss the issues that impact their lives, and find that sense of community and collaboration that we were all experiencing at that very moment. But most importantly, if it didn't exist already, what was stopping us for doing it ourselves?
It was obvious what we needed to do. Headed up by me as editor in chief along with co-founders Trish McFarlane and Shauna Moerke, Women of HR is designed to be a multiple contributor blog that will address what struck us as an area of the online community currently being under serviced. It's all about community, support, and fun.
Call for Contributors
We are seeking 12 -15 contributors who can commit to one original blog post/per month. If you are not able to commit to that schedule, but are interested in writing, we'd like to hear from you too.
You do not have to have a blog, or be a woman, to contribute. This may be the perfect opportunity for you to get your ideas out. Our focus is on informing and supporting women and we are open to a wide range of topics.
What to Do
Intrigued and want to get involved? Send an email to WomenofHR at gmail dot com and include:
- Your level of interest, i.e. the frequency of your contribution to the site
- A brief bio, 75 words max with links to your websites, profiles, etc.
- A picture of you to go with your bio
That's it. Please be sure to contact us no later than Friday May 28th if you are interested. It's been a long time coming but things are moving fast now and we are pushing forward full steam!
I hope you all are just as excited as we are and we look forward to hearing from you.
