HR Leaders Collective Toronto

20 HR leaders in tech. 4 expert facilitators. 1 top-of-mind challenge facing the industry. An infinite number of creative ideas and solutions. HR Leaders Collective is a structured think tank that aims to activate collective knowledge — brokering ideas, stimulating debate, and offering creative yet practical solutions. The key outcome is a branded ebook that will be shared with the broader HR community. We are currently curating challenges and themes for the next group of HR Leaders Collective events – Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, New York City and more. Toronto will take place on May 26, 2022, at Juno College in downtown Toronto. We are proud to be partnering with Hibob and the TAP Network on all HR Leaders Collective events in 2022.
