PROMOTING AND ADVANCING HUMAN RESOURCE EXCELLENCE IN THE GREATER WASHINGTON COMMUNITY

Annual Gala



We are pleased to celebrate the HR industry, to honor its leaders, and recognize how despite the changes in the business world that HR has to, as the pulse of the organization, remain connected- to the strategy, to the people, to the culture. This is a brief moment in the season we set aside to lift up the best of the best in the industry, offer a tremendous networking opportunity and share with you an evening of excellence. Consider joining us to support a nominee, as a sponsor, as a business opportunity. We are excited to be at a new venue this year to highlight our winners and embrace the chance to engage with our executive level attendees!
