KONVERSATIONS

ISB Human Capital SIG began in early 2017 to provide a networking platform through which alumni working in fields related to human capital can have access to a wide network of contacts across industries, specialisations and experience levels and learn best practices, and to create awareness on people issues and HR trends in the larger ISB community. Our objectives also include providing students with opportunities to learn about the field of human capital management beyond academics through information sessions and workshops and to build their appreciation for HR as a potential career. We are delighted to report we have an active community of over 200 members.
  
Since its inception, the Human Capital SIG has focussed on developing and delivering a steady stream of high-quality programming, including talks for students, focus group discussions, webinars, workshops and on-the-ground events.
  
In May, in collaboration with the Singapore Alumni Association, the HC SIG hosted a speaker event called Konversations at Bago, LimeHouse in Singapore. The event was conducted in a packed room of over 60 attendees and featured five extraordinary speakers: Hans Polstra, Founding Partner, VSS and Board Member and Former Chairman, Brasserie Bread; Shweta Shukla, HR Director APAC for Netflix;Ronnie Thomas, Head of Strategy & Planning at PHD Singapore, Durrah Hamdan, Associate Director and Head of Partnerships at X0PA Ai; and our very own alum Akshat Jain (Co2014), Market Development Manager for Facebook. The speakers shared stories and lessons on cross-cultural negotiation; early growth journeys and how to be an ally; how to handle failure and grow from it; how each of us plays a role in diversity and inclusion; and the fight against climate change. The event received a warm response, with many attendees sending us positive feedback on the content and expressing interest in attending more events of this nature in the future.
