MRA is (extremely) excited and a little proud too, to bring the first DisruptHR event to Des Moines (you’re welcome).
Once in a while an event is born that shakes things up, it makes you think differently, and leaves you inspired. That event is DisruptHR.
It is a night of short, focused talks designed to energize, inform, and empower HR leaders, business professionals, and community leaders who are interested in disruptive ideas, and moving the collective thinking forward when it comes to talent in the workplace.
