1. The facilitator will introduce all attendees to the history, format, recent news, and current sponsors of the HRHotSeat Chicago inclusive mastermind community.

2. We will divide into smaller groups.

3. Select attendees will be invited to describe real-life HRHotSeat challenges that they currently face. Each group will then brainstorm questions, solutions, ideas, resources, and connections to help solve the presented challenges.

NOTE: HRHotSeat challenges must be submitted/approved in advance of the upcoming Meetup. Please take a moment to review the HRHotSeat Criteria ( and include your challenge with your RSVP or contact me directly if you would like to benefit from the HRHotSeat!

4. All attendees may reconvene for a brief recap of HRHotSeat challenges presented and closing thoughts from the facilitator.

5. Additional time may be spent networking or talking further about the presented challenges.
