Here at the HR Technology Conference, the first half of the first day was dedicated to the Women in HR Technology conference. First of all, I greatly appreciate the fact that the role of women in technology was highlighted - not just from an end-user perspective, but from the leadership in creating and driving the innovation of the technology. I also appreciated seeing so many men attending sessions. Highlighting women doesn’t mean exclusion of men - it means raising everyone’s awareness, and it takes all of us to be more inclusive.

The events last week in Las Vegas have weighed heavy on my mind as HRTech begins this morning. Honestly, I am struggling with wrapping my arms around it all. My Lyft driver last night was sincerely "raw" as she talked about how the events unfolded and what has weighed over the hearts and minds of the city's residents since then. I feel guilty, actually, as I sit here drinking my latte and going on with my life as if nothing has happened, but that's another blog for another day, I suppose.
Arguably the hottest tech at HR Tech will be in the Talent Acquisition space. TA Tech has blown up over the past decade with billions of dollars entering the market place in investment. It seems like every single day I'm getting an announcement in my email about the launch of a new TA Tech company.
