Introducing the Association’s Newest Member Benefit – Knowledge Centers

The HRO Today Association is excited to announce the launch of its newest member initiative, Knowledge Centers. These are special interest groups that offer members the opportunity to take a dive deep into topics of shared interest, in addition to volunteer leadership and speaking opportunities.

There are two Knowledge Centers launching in June: Talent Acquisition/Talent Management (TA/TM) and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I). The TA/TM Knowledge Center will cover topics such as recruitment strategies, employee engagement, and leadership development. The DE&I Center is focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, offering resources and insights on topics such as unconscious bias, cultural competency, and inclusive leadership.

Next month’s launch will feature the first of three quarterly meetings scheduled for this year. The TA/TM Knowledge Center will meet virtually on June 7 at 11:00 AM ET followed a couple of weeks later by the DE&I Knowledge Center virtual meeting on June 20 at 11:00 AM ET. Click the links to view the meeting agenda and to register.

While any member can register and attend a Knowledge Center meeting, you can gain maximum value by joining one or both of these Knowledge Centers as a Delegate Member. There is no fee to become a Delegate Member and you: are recognized on the Knowledge Center webpage and marketing materials; receive priority access to Knowledge Center meetings; contribute your ideas for discussion topics; and are considered for speaking at Knowledge Center meetings.

To join as a Delegate Member, contact Steve Farace at and indicate which Knowledge Center you would like to join (or both).

The launch of the HRO Today Association’s new Knowledge Centers will enhance our community that is invaluable for HR professionals who are looking to stay up to date on the latest trends and share best practices. Join the HRO Today Knowledge Centers today as a Delegate Member and start benefiting from all that they have to offer.

Showcase Your Thought-Leadership – Present/Facilitate an Upcoming Association Program

Many members have experiences and expertise within HR that can make for a compelling professional development program. Don’t keep it, showcase your knowledge by presenting a Livestream or facilitating an HR Table Talk this summer or fall. Not only do you enhance others knowledge and give back to the association but you also increase your presence amongst the HR Community.

Interested? Simply complete our quick Call For Speaker form, identify a potential topic or two and upon successful review, staff will reach out to set up the event. Need help identifying a topic?
