About seven years ago, I had occasion to write a song, “HR HeRoes,” which was intended to honor the courage, capabilities, and contributions of HR leaders I worked with in my own company as well as peers in the bigger HR community.

Everybody’s looking right at you
And then they slowly step away
They’re wondering what you’re gonna do
And what you’re gonna say

Will you bust right in and save the day?
Somebody’s gotta go
When the truth is brutal
And justice really is the only way
When courage overcomes the fear ...
