#NEHRA2021

October 13 - 15 Newport, RI

 ABOUT

#NEHRA2021, the Northeast HR Association's 2021 Annual Conference is the most engaging, relevant HR conference in the Northeast! The NEHRA Conference provides a balance of practical, ready-to-apply content and innovative, ‘next-practice’ thinking. #NEHRA2021 is the perfect place for collaborating with peers who face the same challenges (& triumphs!) that you do.

As any HR professional knows, this past year has been full of content and information overload. Content and learning will still remain a pillar of the conference, but we are also hard at working planning for moments of relaxation, restoration, and connection. Our goal is for you to return to the 'office' with the tools and knowledge you need to move forward, but also a renewed outlook and fresh perspective on your work.

We are thrilled to welcome the NEHRA community to Gurney's Resort & Marina in Newport, RI for this special in-person event! We will be following all local and state guidance, working with our event industry partners to ensure our attendees health remains our top priority. We cannot wait to see you there!

INTERCULTURAL CREATIVITY: Building and Honoring the Creativity in Us All 

Everybody wants it but most people don't know how to truly achieve it. Innovation rests on creative thinking and creativity rests on the ability to see things from multiple perspectives, dismantling bias, having a curious open mind and building a culture of inclusion and belonging.
