PHRA’s Annual Conference was a lot of learning packed into a short amount of time, for that reason we have created LIVE follow-up sessions.  We will break into groups and focus on specific topical areas so you can participate in important discussions, get feedback, and find the best resources from your peers.

When registering, you must select AT LEAST ONE TICKET.

Registration is Complimentary for Conference Participants.

In order to get the full benefit of these sessions, participants must attend the conference presentation during conference or while the presentation recordings are still available.

In the first session Michael Couch and Richard Citrin, will discuss Reskilling Leaders and Building Agility: Succession Management for the 2020's and Beyond. Approved for Business Credits

Much has been printed about the disruptive impact of AI and the digital economy on work. But what about leadership roles? Are leaders heading the way of bank tellers? Not likely . . . but the impact is undoubtedly to be profound. Explore what's driving the change in leadership and the critical role that Succession Management plays in assuring that your pipeline of talent is focused on the new and ever changing world of work.


November 17th, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM

In the second session Sonia Layne-Gartside will discuss Expert Diversity and Inclusion Tips for Company-Wide Success.

Diversity and Inclusion—the hot button topic of HR practices today. All companies want to have a diverse workforce and be known for their inclusive environments.  Workplace diversity is important but becoming more diverse can be a struggle for some companies. Change is difficult, and many companies often don’t see the value of spending the time and capital for it.  

However, the facts speak for themselves. Diverse companies are reported to be more innovative, have better employee retention, and enjoy higher profits, among other benefits. Implementing workplace diversity and inclusion doesn’t have to be a complicated and arduous process.


November 19th, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM

In the final session Danielle Mundekis will discuss Navigating a Multi-generational Workforce: The Secret is in the Sauce.

For the first time in modern history, maybe ever there are five generations employed together in the workforce.  Each generation in today’s workforce is defined by their experiences and their environment in a way that uniquely and inextricably affects how they function in their place of employment, as well as how they view those with whom they work.  During this session, we will look at the broad spectrum environmental and experiential factors that shape each generation and examine ways to use those factors as vehicles to find common ground and provide stability and cohesion within the workforce.
