Innovative HR by Dr. Marcella McCurdy

We are pleased to announce that Innovative HR is a new podcast hosted by Dr. Marcella McCurdy.  She is the Chief Executive of Marcella McCurdy, LLC, which serves to close economic and workforce gaps by helping organizations recruit the right talent and assisting interns in building their careers. 

Dr. McCurdy focuses on IT talent development/recruitment, succession planning, leadership development, and diversity & inclusion. Dr. McCurdy’s core mission is centered on ‘Bridging Gaps and Breaking Barriers’  in the Career Development space.

Her signature speaking topics are: Ask Me Anything Relating to HR, Leadership, or Diversity which is a question & answer forum. Additionally, she loves to share her story, about overcoming obstacles, and discovering her career path. She uses her voice to ignite change and give inspiration. 

Dr. McCurdy says, “My first large speaking engagement was at our high school class graduation at Mershon Auditorium at the Ohio State University. My speaking story is funny and interesting because in school I would get in trouble for talking too much.

Then I heard Les Brown speak in person in 2019 and he said he loved to talk too. That day, Mr. Brown changed me because the light bulb went off that I could follow in his footsteps and be a world class public speaker as a profession.

Recently I was one of the featured speakers at the Celebrasian Conference in Houston, Texas. Throughout my public and private sector career, I have delivered more than 100 presentations including topics such as, recruiting, training, diversity and inclusion, college internships, technology, and leadership.”
