Workology’s Unofficial SHRM 2022 Party and Event List

Some general house keeping for the list. You must register for the event prior to attending. Some events require you to be a conference attendee and some do not. Please reach out to the event organizer for specific questions. If you have an event you’d like to add, please email me at jessica(at)workology(dot)com and I will add to the list.

I will be updating this list and communicating via text with insider secrets and things to make the most of your NOLA experience at SHRM so look for my updates. Because after the last two and half years, I know you and me deserve a little fun so that’s what I plan to deliver. Responsible. Fun at SHRM22. Be fun. Get rest. Dance a lot and enjoy every stinking minute of the conference. Live your best HR life.

As we are adding new parties and events to the list, my team and I will tag them with a *NEW* tag so you can quickly see what has been added. I’ve also added a *RECOMMENDED* tag so you can see where I will be.
