Upcoming Events

A Fireside Chat with Kevin B. Mahoney Chief Executive Officer – University of Pennsylvania Health System

An HREA Partner Event Presented by HR Department of the Year Awards

Throughout the pandemic, the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) strived to compassionately support its employees as it safeguarded the health of our community.

From expanding upon benefits to ensure staff could balance their family and work responsibilities, to implementing a workforce redeployment model that ensured resources were available at the right time and in the right areas during the pandemic, to tackling racism and bias by elevating diversity, inclusion and equity as a top priority, UPHS led from the front to meet the myriad of challenges facing our region.

In our September HR Department of the Year Webinar, we will hear from Kevin B. Mahoney, CEO of the University of Pennsylvania Health System, as he describes the leadership challenge of managing a community anchor through a pandemic, including how HR was leveraged to meet that challenge.

Come join us for an exciting fall event on October 15th at 8 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency in King of Prussia. We will have a CEO presentation on the very topical Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability featuring Richard Rowe, President and CEO of Arkema.

Richard, a charismatic and well-known figure in the region, will talk about his corporation’s transformational commitment and how it will have implications for DEI, climate/alternative energies and the environment more broadly.


From Our Members

“As a Human Resource professional, you are invited to a number of seminars and networking events. The challenge is finding those that provide the best opportunity for professional development, exchanging best practices and engaging in high quality networking with peers. After attending the Human Resources Executive Alliance event, I can tell you that they have it mastered. Having the opportunity to hear first hand perspectives from the CEO of one the largest healthcare systems in the region was priceless. The HREA is the premiere networking alliance for Human Resources."
