RE+ Events delivers leading-edge global trade events for solar, storage, and renewable energy, promoting leadership, education, and economic growth in the marketplace. With the boom of interest and investment in clean energy solutions nationwide, we have experienced rapid growth in operations and staff. We are seeking an experienced HR Director to support our expansion. Central to your work will be creating a throughline of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in all aspects of the employee lifecycle, aligning our internal practices with our commitment to ensuring RE+ Events are sustainable, diverse, and forward-looking events for the industry.

Reporting to the Chief Business Officer (CBO), you will upgrade and improve our existing HR processes and systems to support a staff of 45 (and growing). You will apply your broad expertise across all areas of HR (ex., recruitment, benefits, compliance, employee relations, training and development, performance management, compensation, and culture management) to enhance and administer human resource policies, programs, and best practices as we bring the best minds and technologies together to transform the biggest energy, environmental, and economic challenges into opportunities that will ensure a prosperous, clean, and productive future. This is a highly engaged, hands-on role where you will address the organization’s day-to-day needs while leading key HR initiatives and managing relationships with HR vendors.

Industry leaders, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), renowned for their unwavering commitment to DEIA, are the guiding forces behind RE+ Events. RE+ Events benefits from a rich legacy of fostering inclusive work environments, cultivating a diverse workforce, and advocating for equitable access within the renewable energy sector.

How You’ll Make an Impact
