About Women of HR

Where did Women of HR begin?

It started one cold night in Chicago, when a group of women gathered together from across the country. There were pomegranate martinis, laughter, and great conversation.

And from that lively conversation came a question:

Why isn’t there a site dedicated to the development of women in HR and business the way we want one to be? Some place that women can go to get information, discuss the issues that impact their lives, and find that sense of community and collaboration that we were all experiencing at that very moment. But most importantly, if it didn’t exist already, what is stopping us for doing it ourselves?

It was obvious what we needed to do and Women of HR was created. Women of HR is a site dedicated to the development of women in human resources and business. It is a place to find information and discuss topics on a wide variety of issues that impact the lives of women.  It’s a place to find community and collaboration.

So, who are the founders, the brains and the brawn behind Women of HR?

Family of woman who fired on APD say she shouldn

Family and friends of Alexia Christian gathered Saturday near where she died two days earlier after Police officers shot her while she was in the back of a patrol car.

Police say Christian, 26, fired at officers first, after escaping from handcuffs in the back of the police cruiser. Christian’s mother and grandfather said she did not deserve to die and that APD failed to follow proper procedure.

“If you look at her arrests, she cheap jerseys china was not in there for no violent crimes,” Felecia Christian said of her daughter. “She might have stolen a car here or there; she was a wild child. She didn’t do anything that would deserve her to be dead. She did nothing to deserve death.”

Family and friends of Alexia Christian gathered Saturday near where she died two days earlier after Police officers shot her while she was in the back of a patrol car. Christian, 26, fired at officers first, despite being handcuffed and in the back of the police cruiser. Christian’s mother said her daughter did not deserve to die and that APD failed to follow proper procedure.

Police Chief George Turner said Friday that Christian managed to free one hand while handcuffed and used a stolen gun to fire three shots at two officers. The officers were not hit, and instead returned fire, hitting Alexia Christian in the car, parked near Underground .

Christian, a mother of two, died after being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Jail records show Alexia Christian was arrested in East Point in March for selling marijuana, and by police in January for shoplifting. Three prior arrests involved auto theft charges.

The officers involved, Jeffery Cook and Omar Thyme, had responded to a request from Fulton County Police about a possible stolen white Ford truck seen in downtown . The driver, later identified as Christian, was handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol car, Turner said. But she was not extensively searched, he said.

“It was clear to us the officer did not search her prior to putting her in the back of the car,” Turner said Friday.

And that was a crucial mistake, Lucius Christian, the woman’s grandfather said Saturday.

Family and friends of Alexia Christian, including her mother Felecia Christian (in green dress) gathered Saturday near where she died two days earlier after Police officers shot her while she was in the back of a patrol car. Police say Christian, 26, fired at officers first. “That was very ugly. They were supposed to have searched her. She didn’t even weigh 100 pounds. You can’t see a gun on a 100 pound person? It shouldn’t have never happened.”

Lucius Christian, of southwest , questioned whether his granddaughter actually had a gun.

“She shouldn’t have, if she did,” he said. “If she did, it was their fault. It wasn’t hers. She was in city police custody. The minute they put handcuffs on her, the minute she entered the back seat of that police car, she wholesale jerseys was in police custody.”

Christian said he has spoken with attorneys but declined to say if the family plans to seek civil penalties against the officers, the police department or the city. But, he made clear he believes the police should face punishment.

“If they’re found guilty, which I feel they are, they should be held accountable by all means,” he said.

Chief Turner said it was not known whether the officers wholesale jerseys patted down Christian at all. As officers asked Christian her name, she fired three shots, narrowly missing the officers, Major Darryl Tolleson said Friday. Cook and Thyme “missed getting killed by an inch,” Tolleson said.

We attract women in leadership roles in business, not for profit, entrepreneural, execs and business owners. Our mastermind is for goals and results and we meet the 3rd week of each month on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, from 3 – 6 nationally. Thursday is the NYC meeting and this movement is where the coolest women you know and business collide. We form small groups no matter if we have 10 or 100 women at the meetng, and each women is on top of her game.

We have plans as well for corprations to send us their female leaders who are still in motion as we are sharing with each other best practices, tips and knowledge from a wide range of women with MOJO.

I would apprecaite a chat to discuss The Exchange Movement and why we believe that when smart women connect, amazing things happen. We can change the world!
