HR and People Leaders Matter More Than Ever


2020 has been nothing short of unprecedented. From a global pandemic to acts of racial injustice, these events have the potential to leave behind a trail of disruption. At the same time, they have elevated the importance of people and culture within companies as never before.


HR leaders no longer need to fight for a seat at the table. Instead, leadership is now coming to them on a daily basis for guidance. From figuring out remote work to holding space for difficult conversations, companies and organizations are relying on their HR leaders more than ever. The world of work has changed. The future needs a different type of leader.


Welcome to Culture Summit Virtual – Modern Leadership


Culture Summit Virtual is a two-day virtual event that brings together founders, thought leaders, and culture champions from all over the world to share insights and best practices on building and transforming culture in the workplace.  Our speakers and workshops empower you with the data, strategies, and frameworks you need to drive actual change in this new world we are living in.



Culture champions all over the world return to Culture Summit for one reason: The Content.


We work with all of our speakers to ensure every session is full of useful takeaways and tangible materials you can bring back to work.


Our theme for 2021 is Modern Leadership and the content will be split amongst three tracks:


  • Thought Leadership – keynote presentations
  • Conversations – panel and roundtable discussions
  • How To’s – workshops and interactive breakouts


Need to get more hands on?  Our workshops are all about interaction.  If the idea of sharpies and colorful post-it notes get you up in the morning, then our workshops were made for you.


Not only will you work in small intimate groups and meet other culture champions, but you’ll also leave with templates, workbooks, toolkits, and more.


Unlike other events where you sit in one place all day, Culture Summit has dedicated sessions that help you interact and connect with other culture champions.


You’ll have opportunities for structured networking and facilitated group sharing sessions where you can share best practices and learn from each other.


Tap into the collective wisdom of our community and get help with your culture building initiatives.


Culture isn’t an HR strategy anymore, it’s an everyone strategy.


Hear from attendees on why they love coming to Culture Summit and what keeps them coming back

Culture Summit energized me to keep pushing for inclusive, diverse and open workplace through the killer speaker keynotes and discussions. Culture is so important both to employee engagement and bottom line, I need to be that much more vocal and intentional. Thank you Culture Summit - I’ll be back next year with my peers!

I came in with no expectations and I went home with a fresh new plan. I felt the energy of the room and I soaked in it. I am glad I found you guys.

Culture Summit is like a magnet for mission-based companies who care about designing a fulfilling employee experience. It's the first time I've walked away from a conference with true genuine connections and not just business cards.
Elizabeth Rose - Founder of ZerModus

After attending a couple of years, I am beginning to build a small community with people I am meeting at Culture Summit and we're able to stay connected long afterward. It is incredible to find your people all in one place!
