About this event

As culture enthusiasts and People Geeks, we recognize the importance of bringing equity and equality into our workplaces, which includes supporting and empowering our female professionals and leaders. To help drive change in this area and make space for open conversation, Culture First OC will host a panel of successful women leaders as well as facilitate a small group discussion surrounding this year’s International Women’s Day theme of “Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.”

Our panelists include:

• Rochelle Mills, President & CEO of Innovative Housing Opportunities

• Terry Lauter Comp, Principle at LTC Performance Strategies

• Christina Gonzalez-Hicks, Owner of Human Resource Plus

• Theresa Fesinstine, Head of People & Culture at Sage

This program is designed to shed light on the challenges and opportunities women face and provide suggestions for engagement and action in your own organization. Come ready to learn, to challenge each other and to plan for action in this important culture focus area.

Please join us! We’d love to see you there!

About Culture First:

As People Geeks, we share a collective passion for improving our workplaces by putting culture first. However, this task is not easy, and going it alone limits our chances of success. However, if we can organize and harness our collective passion, our chances for success are greatly increased.

With this in mind, Culture Amp is supporting the development and growth of regionally led Culture First chapters. The goal is to empower local People Geek Communities worldwide to connect, learn, and support one another in creating the change that we want to see in the world!
