- About Us
The mission of HR Emerging Leaders (formerly HR Young Professionals) is to promote the future of Human Resource Management by offering those new to the HR profession - regardless of age - professional development opportunities and a common networking forum in which to share ideas and experiences. Our goal is to create a community of dynamic HR professionals who are in the early stages of their HR career and cater our offerings to the changing needs of this growing group.
HR Emerging Leaders Conference
Every summer Mile High SHRM’s Emerging Leaders put on a fun, educational conference. The last two years have been held at Coors Field. The format of this conference is always changing and adapting with the times, but in the past, has included a keynote, a panel of experts, and rapid-fire Ignite-style presentations. The HR Emerging Leaders Conference is a great way to introduce yourself to HR issues and develop yourself professionally, while making connections with industry leaders.
Mile High SHRM’s Emerging Leaders host four happy hours throughout the year. The happy hours are an excellent way to meet like-minded people in the HR industry in a casual, lively setting. We alternate between structured networking games (think speed networking!) and free time to connect with new people. Join us at our next happy hour for drinks, apps, and fresh faces!
