In 2022, Cincinnati joined the HR.Hackathon Alliance, is an organization on a mission to transform HR with Design Thinking skills and techniques. The specific 2-hour event called a "Hackathon" is a new type of networking + hands-on learning event you don't want to miss!
The HR.Hackathon Alliance was started by Nicole Dessain, CEO of Talent Imperative (talentimperative.com) based out of Chicago, as an effort to make Design Thinking a common tool used by HR Professionals everywhere.
What is an "HR.Hackathon"? It is a 2-hour workshop where participants work on a real business challenge, listening to learn about it and then "hacking" possible solutions using Design Thinking techniques.
We are delighted to share that the Challenge Host for this event is Kroger and 84.51. They have a great challenge for us this time, so join in the fun!
Who is it for? Any HR Professional in the Greater Cincinnati area, or those willing to travel from nearby cities. No Design Thinking experience is required! Just bring your curiosity, empathy, and ideation skills and look to meet cool, local HR Professionals in a new way!
