Strategic HR at Mt. Washington: Oct 24-26, 2021


KEYNOTE: Making a Difference in Remote and Hybrid Workplaces

Monday, October 25th, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A roadmap for women.

What’s it all about? You’re likely inundated with the data and the stories of how Covid has disproportionately disadvantaged women’s careers. The real question for consideration is – what are we going to do about it on the individual and organizational level? We’ve invited Denise Hamilton to answer some of those questions and to challenge us. Denise is the creator of WatchHerWork, a multimedia digital platform based in Houston, Texas, which is designed to close the achievement gap for professional women. You may have read her recent bylines or seen her appearances on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. If so, you know you’re in for a dynamic and results-oriented keynote. Following her conversation, moderator Joe Andrews will help the audience engage in a nuanced dialogue with Denise, because the challenges women face are diverse, based on a variety of factors such as age, generation, career level, family status, socio-economic issues, and individual goals and value.  

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. 

  • Leave this keynote with a better understanding of the mechanisms for building internal and external relationships in a more remote working world, and why this is of strategic importance to your HR functions and the long arc of your career. 
  • Understand the metrics of accomplishment and how women’s careers are enhanced when they have the tools to demonstrate project creation and results.  
  • Discover why a focus on these issues can and should align seamlessly with your DE&I initiatives and your organization’s values. 

“Of course, the work-from-home conundrum for hybrid worksites is what I call a ‘high rent problem.’ Many people don’t have that option. If you’re fortunate enough to have it, just be sure to do all you can to make up for what you might be missing on site. If you do this right, you can be a trailblazer, helping normalize work from home for the post-pandemic era.” Denise Hamilton
