    Your hosts:

    Carly Cripe (Senior Specialist, People Advisor @ ArrowMcLaren Indy Car Team)

    Marie Watkins (Founder of Polaris Talent and DriveHer Consulting).

    What is this?
    After meeting at Women with Drive last November, Marie and Carly discovered a shared desire to forge a community that understands the unique challenges of the Motorsports industry when it comes to the people side of the organization. Recruiting and hiring, building culture, training and developing talent, and creating a diverse workplace in the office, shop, and at the track require a different style of human resources knowledge than in traditional industries. Carly and Marie believe it's time to create a space for anyone who handles these things can come together monthly for support, networking, dialogue, and knowledge sharing for anyone who is involved in human resources for motorsports.

    We will not record meetings due to the nature of HR topics as well as our desire to protect and preserve any confidential info and NDA requirements.

    We envision a monthly format of equal parts knowledge sharing from guest speakers and more informal discussions of timely topics people would like to share.

    Who is this for? You don't need to have HR officially in your title! If you handle hiring, training, employee engagement and development, people operations, etc please join us. We welcome series and track owners, team owners and leaders, HR and recruiting professionals, etc. If you feel this topic is relevant to you, you are welcome.
