Keishia's Highlight

It is abundantly clear that SHRM Atlanta is a place that deeply values its community members. Their dedication to fostering a supportive environment and providing valuable insights was evident in every aspect of the SOAHR 2024 conference. Beyond being a premier gathering for HR professionals in the heart of Atlanta, the genuine camaraderie and passion between everyone there just shined through in every photo, conversation, and story we got to hear.

It was truly an honor to engage with such dedicated humans and learn about our meaningful narratives. I believe that by sharing these stories and insights, we can collectively enrich our understanding of what it means to put the human back into human resources.

Here’s to the countless stories waiting to be shared and the endless opportunities for growth and connection that lie ahead!

Warmest regards,

Hi! I decided to write this as it’s my introduction to you:

My friends call me “X” and my mom gave me the middle name Xavier because she thought it would look good on a campaign sign.

I got my professional start in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina as an AmeriCorps member. I worked for the City of New Orleans for three years and also co-founded a charitable organization responsible for the largest integration of public art and emergency preparedness in the world called “Evacuspots.”

Since then, my life has taken many turns as all of ours do. Professionally, I’ve surrounded myself with people more talented and skilled than me and with clients who believe in our work.

It’s worked out so far, and I’m ready for our next challenge, which is bigger, bolder and scarier than I’d initially imagined it to be. That’s why we’re hiring you–to be at my side as we take Dear World to places we never initially thought possible.

Robert “X” Fogarty
