Trish co-founded HRevolution, a conference to highlight emerging trends and the future of HR, with the goal of providing an alternative networking and learning experience for business professionals who were tired of the traditional conference model.

Trish co-founded Women of HR in order to give a voice to practitioners who are passionate about issues affecting women in the workplace. The blog is a place to find information and discuss a variety of topics that impact the lives of women.
