HBA Offerings, Resources and Tools Adapting to the New Normal

As organizations across the globe adapt to a “new normal,” so has the HBA – Our United Force for Change.

Although in-person events are postponed, we want you to know that our robust member and volunteer network is communicating, connecting and offering resources to help you navigate today’s workplace.

Here’s how:

HBA COMMUNITY

HBA members are supporting each other by sharing informative and inspiring conversations in our digital Community. Your peers are sharing best practices, tips on navigating during a crisis and stories of encouragement that you won’t want to miss.  

The Community hosts forums to connect members in chapters, regions as well as with affinity groups who share a common interest such as Fit to Lead or Tomorrow’s Executives.

As a member, you're already in. Join in the conversations today and/or update your Community notification settings.


HBA PROGRAMMING AND EVENTS

Regional leaders across the globe are working to bring you and members in the HBA’s 55 locations relevant and timely topics critical to managing through these challenging times – digitally, of course.

And as a member, you’re invited to participate in all of these virtual offerings.

Our offerings are updated and expanding often, so check out the events page and be sure to bookmark it for frequent registration visits! Upcoming timely topics this month include:

  • Achieving Virtual Engagement—Strategies to Facilitate Interaction and Engagement with Remote Audiences
  • Remote Leadership: A Virtual Session on Leading Remote Teams
  • Virtual Social and Sips: Humanizing Virtual Connections

If you missed the special United Against Covid-19: Insights from Italy attended by more than 900 HBA members on 27 March, or the follow up 14 April broadcast United Against Covid 19: Answers from Italy and Insights from New York, you can hear the recordings here: Part 1 and Part 2.

HBA’s #GoodNewsNow

The HBA is mindful that we all need a lift, a happy story, a positive, some “GoodNewsNow” to help us cope in these chaotic times.

That’s why we launched our #GoodNewsNow campaign.

First, on 25 March, we shared an exciting announcement about the 145 industry women being recognized with  HBA’s annual Rising Star or Luminary designation.

It’s likely one of these dynamic leaders work for your organization. So take a look at the list of Rising Stars and Luminaries and reach out to your colleague. Working from home makes it a great time to share a virtual coffee and connect with women making an impactful difference in the workplace.

Our second wave of #GoodNewsNow kicks off next week as we recognize HBA industry partners making a difference in the pandemic fight.

You can follow along in HBA’s social media channels. If your company, your team…or you are supporting efforts to battle COVID-19 or providing support to those in need, please reach out and let us know.

           

After all, as a United Force for Change, we’re all in this together.
