PIHRA Emerging Leaders Sponsorship Program

Emerging Leaders (EL) are the future of PIHRA and the HR profession.  It is vital that PIHRA be visible and accessible to Emerging Leaders in Southern California to help build the pool of future leaders in the association and profession.  Our mission statement is: The PIHRA Emerging Leaders Committee exists to engage, equip and encourage emerging professionals who are actively working in or are interested in Human Resources.

“When I joined PIHRA I was only a few years into my career. I did not know what to expect or what to do. My PIHRA Chapter took me in and assisted me in a many different issues that popped up with my position as a Human Resources Manager. I served as the membership chair for my local chapter and loved to get other individuals excited about PIHRA. I even sat for my SPHR because of the people there that encouraged me to continue to learn and grow!”
~Christina Gonzalez-Hicks, MBA, SPHR, LEAPROS.

With support from our sponsors, The EL program is able to host incredible quarterly events around Southern California to enhance the learning and networking capabilities of the ELs throughout the region.  We have started an informal mentoring network, partnered with all 17 districts and seen a huge, energetic growing Emerging Leaders population. With over 700 ELs and Emerging Leaders-engaged PIHRA members on our distribution list, we believe that we provide an incredible target market for any sponsor.

The PIHRA EL Program is designed to invest in the future leaders of the HR profession, most importantly, giving them the opportunity to build a network within their own community and with more seasoned HR professionals. PIHRA EL provides the visibility and the tools necessary to help empower emerging HR professionals to become successful change agents.

“I had fun meeting all types of people tonight. As an emerging HR professional, it’s hard to find a space to connect with people…this is the type of space that I need to connect with people and ask questions.”
