We are proud to announce the 2022 Summer Workshop: "Innovating Together, Laying the Foundation," taking place July 14–July 17, 2022, at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA.
At this year's workshop, we'll collaborate on complex challenges that demand the leadership and creativity that are hallmarks of the Hertz community, including cybersecurity and intellectual property, artificial intelligence and machine learning, inclusivity in science, and climate change. Just as in previous years, we'll no doubt leave Boston with ideas and inspiration to find solutions that strengthen our nation and help build a better future for all.
Registration is now closed. If you registered, please stay tuned for more details on the event and we look forward to seeing you in Boston July 14-17!
The 2022 Summer Workshop will take place at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA. This award-winning hotel offers an authentic New England feel on the historic waterfront with dozens of restaurants, parks and museums within walking distance. Overlooking Boston Harbor and backed by city views, Seaport offers beautifully designed rooms and suites with bedside reading lights and master light switches and ample outlets for connectivity plus complimentary WiFi.
Guests who are traveling to Boston and need a hotel can book at the Seaport Hotel using the Hertz Foundation's room block (available through June 15) or directly through the Seaport Hotel, if they have availability.
