March 2020: #PeopleAnalyticsMonth: A Month of People Analytics Meetups
In summer last year, it seemed like fun idea to
find and grow the global network of HR and people analytics meetup communities
around the world,
building guides and support materials
to help them,
finding them speakers
and creating a group of awesome meetup founders. How many of these dynamic grassroots communities could we find? How many could we support or even inspire? Could we join together a global grassroots ecosystem?
Six months later, we've so far found over 25 groups, each founded by an inspirational leader (or group of leaders), investing their spare time in bringing together their local people analytics communities. These leaders have brought together over 1,000 people across over 40 events. And most exciting for me, over 50% of these groups started since the adventure began.
, a global gathering of the grassroots People Analytics community
During March 2020, Auckland to Sofia to Buenos Aires to San Francisco, HR and People Analytics meetups will be taking place throughout the world. Most of them will be taking place on Tuesday 17 March, with each timezone passing the baton from one to the other, and the rest taking place through the rest of the month.
Where are Meetups taking place and who are the community leaders?
The best place to check is the Global Meetup Calendar from next week, but here are some of the cities/communities taking part (names tagged into the comments section):
(Sarah Kieran and Maria Belizon)
(Brydie Lear, Patrick Coolen, Marielle Sonnenberg),
(Marta Gascón Corella),
(Sergio Garcia Mora, Lucila Baus, Pablo Senra and Patricia Hartvig),
(Roel van Etten),
(Stela Lupushor, Jeremy Shapiro),
Salt Lake City

What should you expect?
In characteristic Meetup style, each community is running its own event, in its own style and culture, meeting the needs of its community. What might you expect if you attend an event? The one thing guaranteed: You will meet a wide variety of people analytics enthusiasts, from different backgrounds, wide diversities of experience, all of whom might spark innovation when you speak.
Other than that? Some meetups are doing panels, some are doing topics such as ethics, some are doing evening events, some are discussing research, some are doing networking bingo, some are featuring non-HR speakers. The only way to find out, is to attend!
