Open since 2013, we’re a dynamic community of women committed to leaving no woman in HR behind.

What was once an unofficial group of female HR professionals, is now a dynamic community meeting the ever-changing needs of its members.

HR Girlfriends™ was started in November 2010 as a meetup.com group. The original name of the group was called HR Professional Girlfriends. After the original creator of the group found herself too busy to run the group she passed the baton. With change in leadership the name was shortened to HR Girlfriends.

In March 2013 the baton was passed yet again to Sana’ Rasul, who has taken HR Girlfriends in a new and exciting direction.

HR Girlfriends has been such a wonderful resource to me during my move to the Washington DC area. HR Girlfriends works hard to connect women to the right companies and has a remarkable track record of networking power. I have increased my contact list, gained vital interview experience, and met a wonderful variety of professionals at social events. Thank you HR Girlfriends for helping me transition into a Human Resources career the right way.
