Disrupt HR - Benefit for Computers4Kids

Since 2012, the DisruptHR franchise has promoted creative, thought-provoking talent-related speaking events around the world. To date, more than 150 cities worldwide have organized locally inspired events under the DisruptHR monaker. In 2018, a group of Charlottesville business, education, and nonprofit leaders brought DisruptHR to our community for the first time. Here is a link to the talks that were presented that night.

On May 21st at the Jefferson Theater, fourteen Charlottesville area leaders will each present a talk that challenges our conceptions of work and talent. The talented Denise Stewart will be our emcee once more.

Our goal this year (as last) is to support Computers4Kids in their mission to inspire low income youth in the Charlottesville area to pursue careers in science, technology, mathematics and the arts.

Beginning at 5:00 p.m., we will host a business networking event with light appetizers and drinks. Presentations will begin at 6:00 p.m. and conclude by 7:30 p.m., at which point we will adjourn to a post-event speaker meet and greet.

We look forward to seeing you there! Our confirmed speakers are:

  • Denise Stewart (Emcee)
